See the majestic temple in Virtual Reality through Google Cardboard and the Arts & Culture Mobile App with 360 Street View technology
Located in Central Java, Indonesia, thousands of people from all over the world visit this ancient temple. Known to the locals as "Candi Borobudur," you will now have a chance to take a virtual trip and see it like you've never seen before.
The largest buddhist temple in the world, visitors are greeted with lion statues at the main entrance from the East Side Pedestrian Walkway.
At 115 feet or 35 meters high from ground level, you can walk up nine platforms to reach the top.
There are four main Balustrade galleries, each with its own level. The first gallery consists of an upper and a lower section with reliefs featuring both narrative tales and decorative carvings.
As you travel up, you can see more from the Jataka, which are stories from before Buddha's birth as Prince Siddhartha, and Avadana tales, in which stories about other legendary characters are told.

From the southside walkway, you'll see one of the many "Kalas," meaning time, which are gates located on the different levels of the temple.
