Photographer's Note

On this day I payed my hefty sum of money to the Manohara Hotel to let me into Borobudur before the sun came up. This enabled me to capture the mist surrounding the hills before the temple was crawling with tourists.

Borobudur is a Buddhist stupa and temple complex in Central Java, Indonesia dating from the 8th century, and a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The monument consists of six square platforms topped by three circular platforms, and is decorated with 2,672 relief panels and 504 Buddha statues. The temple’s design in Gupta architecture reflects India's influence on the region, yet there are enough indigenous scenes and elements incorporated to make Borobudur uniquely Indonesian.
