Retracing our steps reluctantly from the Boro Boedoer we return to Djocja. A short train journey takes us to Solo.
Everywhere throughout the galleries are texts carved on the walls, but most of them have not been finally identified. It is remarkable that the whole of this great monument of ingenuity and its terraces was built without mortar or cement.
The Netherlands Government has spent during the last ten years /1,500,000 upon the restoration of the ruins. Major van Erp imparted much interesting information upon this wonderful temple and the gigantic task of its restoration, which is now practically completed.
The view from the top plateau is beyond description, beautiful.
