Borobudur is the name of a Buddhist temple located in the area of ​​Magelang, Central Java. Based on its history, this temple was moved in the 14th century as Hindu and Buddhist influence declined in Java and the influence of Islam began to emerge. This Borobudur Temple was once buried under the ground and trees growing above. But in the end this building was built since 1814 by Sir Thomas Stamford Raffles who was then approved as the Governor of Java at this time was still under British rule.
The name Borobudur is a help from Raffles in English namely Bore-Budur. Boro (Bore) is the closest village where this historic building was found, while Budur was taken from Javanese, which means Purba. So Borobudur means "Old Boro". Believe? If it's wrong, please correct, huh?
