In the 1930's W.O.J.Nieuwenkamp never give scientific fantasy of the Borobudur Temple.Supported research on geology, Nieuwenkamp said that Borobudur stupa instead referred to as a building but as a lotus flower floating on the lake.The lake is now dry at all, used to cover a portion of Kedu lying areas that lie around the hill of Borobudur.Aerial photo Kedu area does give the impression of a vast lake around the Borobudur Temple.According to ancient scriptures, a temple founded in the vicinity bercengkeramanya the gods.The peak and slope of the hill, an area of volcanic activity, plateaus, banks of rivers and lakes, and the confluence of two rivers is considered to be a good location for the establishment of a temple.What's interesting is the name Borobudur temple architect, who named Gunadharma.But who Gunadharma?There are no historical records about a character named Gunadharma this.It is estimated Gunadharma is a symbol of the name of someone who has exceptional intellectual.There is an assumption that the Borobudur Temple was built with the help of 'other beings'.Basic materials making up the Borobudur Temple is a rock that reaches thousands of cubic meters of them.A stone weighing hundreds of kilograms.Remarkably, to glue the stones do not use cement.Antarbatu only linked to each other, the stone top-down, left and right, and rear-front.When viewed from the air, then the form of Borobudur Temple and statue-statue relatively symmetrical.The greatness of another, nearby Borobudur temple and there are Mendut Pawon.Apparently Borobudur, Mendut, and if drawn the line Pawon Khayat, are in a straight line.So no wonder there is a legend that says the ancients mastered the science of magic so they can fly in space.Including the Gunadharma this?
