Borobudur: Golden Tales of the Buddhas by John Miksic
Borobudur: Golden Tales of the Buddhas by John Miksic

The glorious ninth-century Buddhist stupa of Borobudur--the largest Buddhist monument in the world--stands in the midst of the lush Kedu Plain of Central Java in Indonesia. Borobudur contains more than a thousand exquisitely carved relief panels, arranged so as to take the visitor on a spiritual journey to enlightenment. This book is intended to enhance the enjoyment which one obtains from Borobudur and its reliefs, by describing what is known of the ancient Javanese who built it and of the symbols which they employed to express their conception of man's place in the universe. Photographs by Marcello and Anita Tranchini.
