Borobudur, Java. Borobudur is one of the greatest Buddhist relics in South-East Asia and is Indonesia's most famous attraction. Rulers of the Sailendra dynasty built the colossal pyramid of Borobudur between 750 and 850 AD, but it was soon abandoned and for centuries lay hidden under layers of volcanic ash. There are a number of levels to the temple. Starting at the base, the images show the earthly delights of man and become progressively more spiritual till they reach their climax at the height of the temple. Photo by Rebecca Bassingthwaighte.
