Caged Buddhas High in the Temple in Borobudur

    Newer Older

    The stupa is covered with Buddhas, most of which are encased in these bell-shaped cages. Early during the sunrise, I went around from cage to cage to peer inside with a flashlight. Every buddha is holding his hands in a slightly different arrangement. It was super dark and moody while I was there, and I was going to freak out if I peered in on one of them, and his pose was to block the flashlight from his eyes.

    There is a bigger one at www.stuckincustoms.com ! :)

      One of the most spectacular places I've been. I also got to see it early in the morning as the sun was rising, very few people around. So serene. Great shot....it puts me right there!
