The Main Stupa of Borobudur as Gnomon and Its Relation With Pronotomongso Calendar System


Last modified: 2011-06-08
Abstract

The main stupa of Borobudur as gnomon is calculated from its shadow path made by the Sun, specifically observed during the Vernal Equinox (Hariawang et al., 2010). In this work we continue the calculation by elaborating the Pronotomongso Calendar System, javanese calendar system based on solar movement (Ammarell, 1987), and reconstruct the model of the main stupa as gnomon ('Bencet' in Javanese language) (Aveni, 1981) by numerical simulation.
