Though a Buddhist creation, it incorporates Persian, Babylonian and Greek influences.

Its ensembles of stone relief panels are virtual history of Mahayana Buddhist doctrine as well as providing scholars with detailed information about life in 8th and 9th century Java. If you were to look at every gallery from base to summit, you would walk for more than three miles. Soon after its completion, the local rulers were overthrown by the Hindus and Borobudur was abandoned. Buried under volcanic ash and tropical growth, it was only rediscovered in 1815.
