This temple called Borobudur Temple which located in a village named Magelang, Central java.

This second of the largest temple after the Angkor Wat Temple in Kamboja was built by the stones without any cement to glue all the constructions things. The size is 123 x 123 meter.

I remember when i did an interview with the best history lecturer in Indonesia for my project, i asked about this Borobudur temple. He said, based on his research, probably  long ago  Borobudur temple painted in white and floated in an artificial lake, so it looks like white lotus floating in the water. They made the temple first, then dam up the  Progo and Elok river. Isn’t it amazing? [cel].
