Borobudur is the largest Buddhist temple in the ninth century. This Buddhist temple has 1460 relief panels and 504 Buddha effigies. Millions of people from around the world are eager to visit the building which is included in this World Wonder Heritages. Not surprising since architecturally and functionally as a place of worship, Borobudur is attractive.

Borobudur was built by King Samaratungga, one of the king of the ancient Mataram kingdom, descendant Wangsa Syailendra. Based on Kayumwungan inscription, an Indonesian named Hudaya Kandahjaya revealed that Borobudur is a place of worship that was completed on 26 May 824, almost one hundred years since the beginning of construction. Borobudur own name according to some people means a mountain having terraces (budhara), while the other says that Borobudur means monastery on the heights.
