Borobudur Temple

on November 6, 2013

postcards_3This pretty card comes from Anis in Indonesia and shows the beautiful Borobudur Temple – the largest temple in the world. Dating back to the 9th century, before being surprisingly abandoned a few hundred years later (why is a mystery). It was then rediscovered, covered in jungle growth in the 1800s – the days when archaeologists ruined everything and looted places, but lets face it, probably enjoyed their jobs a lot more! Fantastic card! Thanks Anis!
