VIVAnews – Borobudur, a magnificent temple in Magelang, Central Java, was expected to be built around the year 824 A.d. by King Samaratungga of Mataram was named the sailendra dynasty. The temple is so heavy it stands foursquare without a single nail has also plugged into the body.
The question has been clear: how building a Borobudur without established hundreds of nails to confirmed his already by, and how heavy rocks that form the Borobudur was appointed to the location of the construction on the Hill?
The sophistication of modern times was difficult to explain the logic behind the construction of Borobudur Temple. Researchers from Indonesia Bandung Fe Institute, try to answer it. Three young researchers, Hokky Situngkir, Roland Mauludy Dahlan, and Ardian Maulana, explains, the construction of the temple using technology based on fractal geometry.
Fractal is a geometric shape that has similar elements as a whole. Form of fractal rough and can be divided in a way that radical. Fractals have infinite detail, and can have a similar structure at different levels of magnification. The term ' faktal ' which is derived from Latin, it was discovered by Benoit Mandelbrot in 1975.
The geometry of fractal that looks at the stupas of Borobudur Temple. As we know, the temple is the giant stupa in which consists of domes and other smaller ones.
Researchers Bandung Fe Institute prove, Borobudur was built with the principles of fractals. But whether the theory of fractals in the past it has been found and implemented consciously by our ancestors, still to be researched further.• VIVAnews
