Sunrise from Borobudur Stupa looking towards Mt Merapi & Mt Merbabu. Merapi is one of the most active volcanoes of recent times & frequently smoke & lava can be seen coming from it's peak. Borobudur is an ancient Buddhist stupa which was buried for several centuries & uncovered again in the 19th century. It's original name is thought to have been "Bhūmi Sambhāra Bhudhāra" which in Sanskrit means "The mountain of combined virtues of the ten stages of Boddhisattvahood". It is again becoming the focus of Buddhist religious rites as the locals celebrate Vesak Festival with a procession from Mendut Temple to Pawon Temple to Borobudur Stupa. Also other Buddhists have been visiting on pilgrimage & to hold festivals & meditation retreats there.
