Sunset Buddha in Borobudur

Was in Yogyakarta for a week on Bahasa Indonesian language course. I arrived on a Saturday evening and had the Sunday off before the course start on Monday. The temple of Borobudur is just 40 km from Yogya. A good chance to visit the mountain temple complex  I heard a lot about when visiting Angkor Way in Cambodia. Went on late afternoon. Foreign and Indonesian tourists climbed the temple and gathered on the top terrace to observe the sunset across the valley. The Buddhas were watching with their enigmatic stare as they have been doing for the last 1200 years.
