The Restoration of Borobudur

‘(…). The book, itself, a handsomely-produced hard-back quarto, rich with plates and figures and tables, traces and documents all the phases of the restoration project with great care and detail, often making dry facts and innumerable dates and figures appear avid reading material. (…)’

T. Wignesan, The Asianist’s Asia

‘(…) Although intensely detailed, with prodigious quantities of scientific and statistical information as well as copious graphs and tables, this book grips even the lay reader’s attention throughout. The spiritual and aesthetic values of the incomparable monument are always kept in mind, while the insights offered into the ability of a dedicated and adequately funded team to tackle seemingly overwhelming challenges are instructive and inspiring. (…)’

Helen Ibbitson Jessup, Orientations, May 2009

‘This book records the two-decade rehabilitation of the magnificent Buddhist site of Chandi Borobudur, located in Central Java. This terraced temple is constructed from blocks of volcanic rock, with sections dating as early as 800 A .D. Rediscovered in the early nineteenth century, by the mid-twentieth century the monument was showing such alarming signs of decay that a UNESCO restoration and reconstruction project was initiated in the 1970s. The book presents the temple’s history, provides details on the UNESCO project as well as earlier conservation efforts, and cites Borobudur’s recognition as a World Heritage Site in 1991.’
