Borobudur is a hill-temple, a stone rendering of Buddhist Mahayana's perception of the world: an ornamented surrounding pedestal, with a rather square base (128m), supports the temple with the power and complexity of the projections; of its recesses gives the impression of a strong fortress. On a square base rises four floors, each of which consists of concentric galleries and a number of small decorative temples. On the top floor there are three round terraces with a ridge: at the highest point there is a large circular closed colt.
