Images of the now threatened Borobodur
16

Borobodur is a massive 9th Century Buddhist temple in what is now Muslim-dominated Java, Indonesia. It was abandoned in the 14th Century as Islam spread across the Indonesian archipelago and only became known to the outside world in the 19th Century. It was bombed by extremists in 1985 and since been further damaged by earthquakes (a severe one in 2006) and volcanic eruptions (one as recent as this past February). Then just last week, ISIS declared its apparent intention to destroy the world heritage site (ISIS Threatens Borobodur).

I was there two weeks ago and took these photos with my A7R. Thanks for looking...

This is not at Borobodur, but at a nearby Hindu temple/palace complex
