Ancient Indonesian Volcanic Stone Buddha Head – Buddhist art in Java was at its height during the reign of the Shailendra/Syailendra Dynasty, between the 8th and 12th centuries AD. Today the most famous and most visited Buddhist temple built during that period is the Borobudur stupa, located in Kedu Valley in central Java.
The kings of the Shailendra dynasty were intensely devoted to the Buddhist faith and actively traded with the Pala and Chola kings in India, as well as the Srivijaya empire in Sumatra. The kings of Srivijaya in Sumatra also founded monasteries in Nalanda and Nagapattinam in India.
