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, where it is visited annually by over a million people. Borobudur contains more than a thousand exquisitely carved relief panels extending along its many terraces for a total distance of more than a kilometer. These are arranged so as to take the visitor on a spiritual journey to enlightment, and one ascend the monument past scenes depicting the world of desire, the life story of Buddha, and the heroic deeds of other enlightened beings -- finally arriving at the great circular terraces at the top of the structure that symbolize the formless world of pure knowledge and perfection.
