Indonesia: Borobudur

On Tuesday I got two postcards: one from France and one from Indonesia. The card from Indonesia shows Borobudur. Borobudur is the largest Buddhist monument in the world. It was built in the 9th centenary. There were original 504 Buddhas, but most of them are damaged and some are lost. And since 1991 it is UNESCO World Heritage.

With nice stamps:
Summer Olympics in Beijing (from set of four) (issued 18-03-2008),
Youth Olympic Games in Singapore (from set of two) (issued 15-07-2010)
and 150 years Red Cross (whole set) (issued 08-05-2013)

Thank You so much Shinta!
