The temple of Barabudur can be found in Central Java, which is part of Indonesia. The temple is very old, originally being constructed in the early ninth century. It contains a great deal of Buddhist history. The temple has many Buddhists reliefs, which are a type of raised sculpture done in either stone or wood. The original purpose of the temple was for Buddhist priests to mediate and enter a state of Nirvana, also known as spiritual enlightenment.
