Magelang, C Java (ANTARA News)
Miss Universe Dayana Mendonza (22) in her current tour of Indonesia paid a visit to the well known Buddhist temple of Borobudur in Magelang district, Central Java, on Monday.

Accompanied by Miss Indonesia 2008, Zivanna Lestisha Siregar, Mendonza arrived at the temple at around 8.30 am.

Director for Operation and Development of Borobudur and Prambanan Temples, Guntur Puronomo Adi received the Miss Universe in the Borobudur temple yard. Purnomo Adi when receiving the Miss Universe was accompanied by Retno Hardiasiwi, head of the Borobudur Tourism Park unit.

Guntur handed over a gift in the form of a book titled “Borobudur Prayer in Stone” to Mendonza. Besides, the book, the Miss Universe also received a traditional `batik` cloth with a motive of the Borobudur temple.

Mendonza had an observation tour of the temple, and walked around the stupa in the temple peak. She happened to try to reach one of the Buddhist statue named “Kunto Bimo” by Javanese people.

Javanese believed that whoever was able to touch the legs of the statue would be awarded with welfare and have his or her prayers answered.

Mendonze left the temple at 9.10 am after taking a picture in the temple`s yard.(*)
