    Borobudur Temple, Yogyakarta, Indonesia. A place of quiet beauty. Thousands of stone buddhas sit on temple levels... the bell shaped structures actually have more buddhas in them. It's considered lucky to reach in and try to touch one inside (NOT an easy task!) and there were so many different meanings to the place. The number of levels, the amount of buddhas... there was a religious significance to all of it. Serenity at it's best.
