Borobudur Temple

Thank you Cees! Far right on this 1971 FDC is a semi-postal of the Borobudur Preservation Foundation which Prince Bernard was a supporter of, and who this 4v features. This 9th cent. Buddhist monument  in Java was abandoned in the 14th cent., and not brought to western light until 1814. Its present notoriety was gained in part, through several major restoration projects in the 1910s, '70s, '80s and 2000s.
