It is massive! From the main Buddha statue, the pagodas, the many halls, statues, etc and notice there is even a sort of Maha Bodhi replica in front of the Buddha.

Close up of some of the stupas in front of the Buddha, which have a similar design to Maha Bodhi Temple.

And of course, perhaps the most important of all Buddhist temples, the Maha Bodhi Temple.

Not much of traveller am I, too old also. But Borobudur attracts, so ornate with Mahayana symbolism.
