The Heartbreaking Story Behind the Magnificent Borobudur Temple. A good sight is the main attraction of the Borobudur Temple to tourists to come alongside historical stories from the origin of its construction.
But still, behind the beauty and splendor of the enormous Borobudur Temple, there is a dark story that really makes Borobudur Temple look very tormented. Various dark past stories to the lack of awareness of the tourists who come to visit, become a threat to the survival of the Borobudur Temple.
The Birth Of Borobudur Temple On Earth
Borobudur Temple was discovered when Indonesia was still occupied by the Dutch. Raffles initially heard the news about the Borobudur Temple from a report of someone on a business trip to Semarang. Because Raffles has a very high interest in ancient relics of the past, he finally appointed one of the Dutch officers named Cornelius to find, bring up, and clean the Borobudur Temple in question. At that time, Borobudur Temple still only looked like a hill covered with shrubs and trees. Though Raffles discovered the existence of this Borobudur Temple alone in 1814.
The perpetrators who carried out the acts of terror were considered to be terrorist groups who had a radical understanding within their group. Blasting occurred on floors 8 to 10 at Borobudur Temple.
That is because the various actions of tourists often threaten the existence of various objects in the Borobudur Temple itself. Of course, in addition to threatening one’s own safety, this can also damage the building of the temple because of its old age and vulnerability. The surrounding community also found Borobudur Temple when it did not understand the meaning of history. Workers at that time were willing to destroy some of the temples in the Borobudur Temple area only as a place of rest only.
