Access 360° World Heritage: Borobudur

One of the exposed and intact Buddha statues on the upper levels of the Borobudur temple.
Borobudur is the largest Buddhist monument in the world. After being abandoned for nearly 1,000 years, this ancient Indonesian structure from around the eighth century now attracts more than 2 million visitors a year. We'll meet the restoration and maintenance teams trying to repair this World Heritage site before tourism, natural elements or a nearby volcano destroy it completely.
