There are 2 black roofed small structures outside the Guesthouse, one on each side of the road. The traditional Chinese roofs cover miniature models of Borobudur Temple, which is located in Central Java, Indonesia. It is considered to be one of the seven wonders of the world.
The actual size of Borobudur is 2.5 kms square. It was built by Sanmaratungga in the 8th century and belongs to the Buddhist Mahayana tradition. Based on the inscription, dated 842AD, it was suggested that Borobudur was at one time a place for praying. It was found buried and in ruins by Sir Thomas Stanford Raffles in 1814. Restoration projects commenced in 1905 and the last such project was completed in 1983.
The Temple is built in a conical form (stupa) with 10 floors, rising to an original height of 42 meters, but now only 34.5 meters, after restoration. The 1st floor to the 6th was square in shape and the 7th to the 10th floors were round.
Along the corridors are long series of carved reliefs, which express the previous lives of the Buddha, when he was a Bodhisattva.
