Borobudur

Travel Theme: WALLS

Walls evoke  a feeling of security in all of us. It is familiar. It’s what we see every day. At the same time, walls leave us at awe whenever something in it surprises us.

The following are my photos for this week’s theme.

Almost anyone will agree that this theme won’t be complete without putting this here.

Bangkok’s Grand Palace Mural

I was still in college when I visited Bangkok, but the place surely amazed me. From architecture to art, the Grand Palace was stunning. This was a portion of a wall of a corridor on the way to another part of the palace.

Angkor Wat’s Relief Sculpture

This was the first place that I ever got to see relief sculptures in walls. These depicted stories (yet I have no idea what they were). I just knew that because I saw some guides telling the tourists what these were about. 😛

Yogyakarta’s Borobudur

When climbing Borobudur, you’ll see a lot of relief sculptures. The photos below were taken from the low to middle sections of the structure, depicting the earthly life of human beings.
