The Zenith Passage of the Sun at Candi Borobudur

The Zenith Passage of the Sun at Candi Borobudur









An article where I discuss the link of the 72 stupas on the top platform of the Borobudur temple to the number of days between the solstice and the zenith passage of the sun. This link is strengthened by the recent find of an alignment of Borobudur and the satellites Mendut and Pawon temples, along the sunset azimuth on the day of zenith passage of the sun, proposed by G. Magli in arXiv.
