The picture to the left is the ruins of Borobudur which houses a number of stupas which contain Buddhas inside. The picture below is the Mountain Merapi which spews ash and water vapour even today. This was the same vulcano which had stopped all air traffic last year. It covers the entire ruins of Borobudur and they had to dig for them and remove the ash which had covered it all.
- The place to visit would be Borobudur and Jogjakarta in Indonesia. Here are some images which I captured. Have a look..... The small images are of the Shiv Linga with the Linga missing. The next image is of Vishnu and Nandi with the ears broken away. The photo below are of the temple of Prambanan at Jogjakarta with images of Vishnu and Brahma. Also seen are the ruins of smaller temples around the same Prambanan temple. The time to visit would be late in the year since it is very hot there during summer being close to equator. The most important thing to do is to see the morning sunrise over Borobudur. There are excellent hotels catering to all kinds of tourists. Visa is available on arrival.
- I hope I was able to convey a few things that would make you go there. Try meditating atop Borobudur as early as 4.30am. Its real heaven.
