Wacana 5.

The Borobudur temple, with its seven terraces and its stupas, is the world’s largest Buddhist temple. The Sailendra dynasty Built Borobudur in the ninth century. Not long after that people left the area but no one knows why they left. For the next 800 years people almost forgot the temple because it was buried under earth and trees, this caused a lot of damage.
At the beginning of the nineteenth century, first the British government, and then the Dutch government attempted to uncover the temple. They thought “If we don’t try to save this temple, we will lose it”.
Later on, the Indonesian government also made efforts to preserve the temple. So several years ago they asked UNESCO to help restore it. Then helps came from many countries.
In 1973 the restoration work began. A team of Indonesia and foreign expert and hundreds of Indonesian workers tried to rebuild the temple. It was a big job. First they took down more than two million stones of the temple piece by piece. Then they cleaned, repaired and treated them. After that they returned each stones to its .proper place. They also strengthened the inside of the temple.
At the beginning of 1983 the work was completed. Experts believe that temple will last for another thousand years or more if nothing serious happens.
Unfortunately, however, some people do not realize how valuable this monument is, and recently caused serious damage to it. We hope that this will never happen again.
