Favorite thing: after the theories of location and the creator, borobudur also has mysterious name. ‘till nowadays not yet known the exact name of this buddhist temple. once said as ‘buddha-ur’ or vihara buddha-ur, a vihara [monastery] of the hills [of menoreh]. or another theory said the real name’s ‘bharabuddha’ or buddha worshippers. the other theory said, borobudur name was derived from word ‘boro’ [the great] and ‘buddhara’ [buddha]. then another is ‘bhumisambhara’ or a hill that build from 10 of the good things of the bodhisattva.
