Borobudur Temple, Indonesia

Location: Yogyakarta, Java, Indonesia

Among a host of awesome things to do and see in Indonesia, the ancient Borobudur temple near Yogyakarta on the island of Java was one of my most memorable impressions.

Different from the Angkor Wat temple complex, Borobudur is an single standing fortress that looks like a square castle with multiple layers stacked on top of each other.

In an ancient ritual, followers are intended to walk around each level of the Borobudur temple, symbolical of the Buddhas path to enlightenment.

The view from the top was spectacular.
