In the past, you can admire the relief sculpture by circling Borobudur temple level by level. There is one set of stairs on each side of the temple. Some people just climb straight to the top, but it's better to stop at each level and walk around it. You will be surrounded by stone walls covered with relief sculpture depicting the life of Buddha. The top level doesn’t have relief sculpture, it only has many stupas, each filled with a Buddha statue, except the stupa at the peak. It is the largest stupa, plain without any relief and there is not any Buddha statue inside.
Candi Borobudur, the largest Buddhist Temple in the world.
