Borobudur (circa AD 800) is a ninth-century Mahayana Buddhist monument near Magelang, Central Java, Indonesia. The monument comprises six square platforms topped by three circular platforms, and is decorated with 2,672 relief panels and 504 Buddha statues. A main dome, located at the center of the top platform, is surrounded by 72 Buddha statues seated inside perforated stupa.

Entrance walkway to Prambanan.

Prambanan (circa AD 850) is the ninth century Hindu temple compound in Central Java, Indonesia.

The temple was damaged during the May 2006 Java earthquake.

It got dark around 5pm. So it was time to leave the premises.
