Stupas from summital terrace.

Not far from Jogyakarta, and Merapi, the famous buddhist temple of Borobudur, IX century, in basalt, preserved by an old eruption of Merapi. Real frescoes in stone go round the temple, in a way leading in a symbolic way to the terrace, near the sky and far from wordly temptations.

There, buddhas in full meditation show the way to follow to reach the nirvana.
