In fact, the entire Borobudur structure is also a gigantic stupa. The pyramid shape monument has 3 tiers symbolize the realms of Buddhist cosmology (the world of desires, forms, and formless).

Like all the remarkable ancient sacred temples, the choice of site was not coincident. Borobudur is between 2 volcanoes and 2 rivers.
