What they discovered was the complex of Borobudur, a gigantic structure built with nearly 2 million cubic feet (55,000 m³) of stones. The temple has nearly 2,700 relief panels and 504 Buddha statues.
Meteora, Greece - Meteora is part of central Greece, and is placed on the north-western edge of the Plain of Thessaly near Pindus Mountains and the Peneios River. It constitutes one of the most dramatic landscapes of the country and is also its second largest and most popular complex of monasteries. The monasteries look as if they were suspended in the air, which was purposely done in the 14th century, in order to protect the hermit monks during the Ottoman occupation, by the inaccessibility of these huge rock pillars. Due to the safety of the location of the monasteries there were 26 of them built by the 15th century six of which are still in use today.
