Borobudur is a Buddhist temple in the Central Java region of Indonesia and it dates back to the eighth and ninth centuries. It is also the world’s largest Buddhist temple. The temple complex has over 504 Buddha statues.
Pictured here is a professional surfer and video maker Gemala Hanafiah, sitting in Borobudur Temple. She creates videos for ‘Wet Traveler from Indonesia’; you can check out her website at Gemala.me.
Thankful to Wonderful Indonesia and the Indonesian Ministry of Tourism for a great opportunity to see Indonesia.

A very nice picture. Borobudur is definitely on my to-travel list. Now I’m not sure one can find such peace with hordes of tourists probably swarming the place. ;)
Now I see how symmetry can reinforce a feeling of peacefulness—even paired with strong contrast. Well done, as usual, Joshi.
So calm and peaceful.
Oh Wow! is this place for real? This one’s going on my bucket list!
I like that the background is almost monochromatic, while the human subject is in color – as if the meditation has breathed life into her.
The whole area looks imbued with peace-nice capture .
