Borobudur Temple Compounds
Borobudur Temple Compounds is a term utilized by the World Heritage assignment of the zone of three Buddhist sanctuaries in Central Java, Indonesia. It involves Borobudur, Mendut, and Pawon. These three sanctuaries are situated in a straight line, and have been considered as being worked amid the Sailendra line around 8th–9th hundreds of years. Around 40 kilometers northwest of Yogyakarta, Borobudur is situated in a raised range between two twin volcanoes, Sundoro-Sumbing & Merbabu-Merapi, two waterways, the Progo and the Elo. As per neighborhood myth, the territory known as Kedu Plain is a Javanese "hallowed" place and has been named 'the greenery enclosure of Java' because of its high rural ripeness. Amid the rebuilding in the mid 20 century, it was found that three Buddhist sanctuaries in the locale, Borobudur, Pawon and Mendut, are situated along a straight line. It may be unintentional, yet the sanctuaries' arrangement is in conjunction with a local society story that quite a while prior, there was a block cleared street from Borobudur to Mendut with dividers on both sides. The three sanctuaries (Borobudur–Pawon–Mendut) have comparable design and ornamentation got from the same day and age, which recommends that custom relationship between the three sanctuaries, keeping in mind the end goal to have shaped a hallowed solidarity, more likely than not existed, albeit precise custom procedure is yet obscure.
There are two exhibition halls situated inside Borobudur Temple Compounds, Karmawibhangga Museum and Samudra Raksa Museum.

Subak is the water administration (watering system) framework for paddy fields on Bali Island, Indonesia which was created in the ninth century. For Balinese, watering system is not just giving water to the plant's roots, but rather water is utilized to develop a complex, beat simulated biological system. The framework comprises of five terraced rice fields and water sanctuaries covering almost 20k ha. The sanctuaries are the primary center of this co-agent water administration arrangement of trenches and weirs, which are known as Subak.
Subak is a customary biologically manageable watering system framework that ties Balinese agrarian culture together inside the town's Bale Banjar people group focus and Balinese sanctuaries. The water administrations is under the power of the ministers in water sanctuaries, who hone Tri Hita Karana Philosophy, a self-depicted relationship between people the earth and the divine beings. Tri Hita Karana draws together the domain of soul, the human world and nature. The general Subak framework epitomizes this philosophical rule. Water sanctuary ceremonies advance a congruous relationship amongst individuals and their surroundings through the dynamic engagement of individuals with custom ideas that stress reliance on the life-supporting powers of the regular world. Rice is seen as the endowment of god, and the subak framework is a piece of sanctuary society.

Rice, the water required to develop rice and Subak, the helpful channel framework that controls the water, have together molded the scene in the course of recent years. Water from springs and waterways courses through the sanctuaries and out onto the rice paddy field. Altogether, Bali has around 1,200 water cooperatives and somewhere around 50 and 400 ranchers deal with the water supply from one wellspring of water. The property comprises of five locales that epitomize the interconnected common, religious, and social parts of the customary subak framework.
