Borobudur is the "Pyramid of Java".

I went there on my way while travelling from Jakarta through Java Island to Bali Island.

Yogyakarta is the convenient gateway to Borobudur although you can also fly to Solo town (Surukarta).

Borobudur is one of three cultural UNESCO world heritage sites in Indonesia.

Another one is the Prambanan Temple which is near Yoygakarta. So you can kill two birds with one stone so to speak

The complete Indonsian UNESCO World heritage list is:

Cultural
======
Borobudur Temple Compounds (1991)
Prambanan Temple Compounds (1991)
Sangiran Early Man Site (1996)

Natural
=====
Komodo National Park (1991)
Lorentz National Park (1999)
Tropical Rainforest Heritage of Sumatra (2004)
Ujung Kulon National Park (1991)

    Hi SL, thanks for your message, glad to hear you received the card. Hope you will get your card collection ready, but still some difficult countries to go!

    Borobudur looks almost as impressive as Angkor Wat, but unfortunetly isn't as well-known.
