  • Description

    A team of 600 workmen is toiling fulltime to try to save the crumbling Buddhist temple at Borobudur in Indonesia. Eleven centuries of tremendous pressure from the immense weight of Buddhist images and their casings, plus water seepage, had tilted its lower walls well out of true. Crude restoration work 70 years ago aggravated the temple's physical decline. The United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organisation has raised much of the 11 million dollars needed for the work. Warwick Beutler of the Australian broadcasting Commission reports on how the restoration work is progressing.
