The base of the temple is a square as viewed from the top. There are nine layers and as you move up, the bases become smaller and smaller. At the lower levels of the temple, the sculptors have done an extremely fine job by protraying the entire life story of Gautam Buddha in the form of carvings or Bas-reliefs and the amount of efforts gone into all this seems mind boggling.

Address: Borobudur Temple complex
