About Borobudur Temple
Borobudur Temple is a Buddhist temple located in Borobudur, Magelang, Central Java and precisely located 40 km west of Yogyakarta City. Administratively Borobudur Temple, entered in the Mungkid District, Magelang District, Central Java, Indonesia.
According to the meaning, Borobudur comes from the word, Bara which is interpreted as a monastery complex and Budur, which means above. So that the Borobudur Temple means the temple is located on a hill. This Borobudur temple is in the form of a stupa, founded around 800 AD in the Syailendra era. Borobudur Temple was built before the new Angkor Wat Temple in Cambodia was built in the middle of the 12th century, which was built by King Suryavarman II. This temple is the largest Buddhist temple in the world. In addition, Borobudur is a temple that has a collection of the most complete and most extensive Buddhist reliefs in the world, consisting of six square-shaped terraces on top of which there are three circular courtyards, and on the temple wall decorated with 2,672 reliefs and 504 Buddha statues.
From several references, Borobudur is a masterpiece of Indonesian Buddhist art, as an example of achieving harmony in architectural and aesthetic techniques of Buddhist art in Java. This Borobudur Temple building was inspired by the idea of dharma from India, including stupas and mandalas, and is believed to also be a continuation of local elements. The megalithic structure of punden terraces or also called multilevel pyramids found from the pre-historical period of Indonesia is a combination of native Indonesian ancestor worship and the struggle to attain nirvana in Buddhism.
The stupa at Borobudur Temple is interpreted as the highest symbol of Buddhism which is also a replica of the universe. Which has a symbol of the micro cosmos, which is divided into three levels. In the first level, the human world is affected by negative impulses. At the second stage, humans can control their negative impulses and use positive impulses. Finally, at the highest level, the human world is no longer limited by physical things and determination.
I take a little from a number of references. As a place of religious pilgrimage for Buddhists, these Buddhists always gather at Borobudur Temple every year to commemorate Vesak Trisuci, both from Indonesia and from abroad.
