Game InfoEdit

Must be built in a Holy City.

StrategyEdit

One of the "Religious" Wonders, the Borobudur may jump-start your religion's spreading process in a way no other Wonder is able to. Besides the nice 20xfaith5 Faith bonus, it has the advantage of not requiring any Social Policy branch, unlike the Great Mosque of Djenne.

Historical InfoEdit

Borobudur is a Buddhist candi in Magelang, Java, consisting of six square platforms surmounted by three circular platforms, atop which are 72 small stupas surrounding a large central stupa. The structure is decorated with 2672 bas-relief carvings and 504 Buddhist statues. The temple's three levels represent the three realms of Buddhist cosmology: the world of desires, the world of forms, and the formless world. Construction of Borobudur was completed at some point between 778 and 850 AD, during the Sailendra dynasty. Around 1006 the nearby capital of the successor Medang Kingdom was abandoned due to a series of volcanic eruptions; pilgrimages to Borobudur ceased shortly thereafter. The temple was lost for centuries under layers of ash and jungle until discovered by the British lieutenant governor of Java, Sir Stamford Raffles, in 1814.

TriviaEdit

Borobudur is both a shrine to the Lord Buddha and a place for Buddhist pilgrimage, guiding pilgrims through an extensive system of stairways and corridors with 1460 narrative relief panels on the walls and the balustrades.
