Workers to clean Unesco's world heritage Borobudur temple on Saturday, December 4th 2010. They were working to keep the historic site from being damaged by the thick ash that has fallen from nearby Mount Merapi's eruption. Mount Merapi unleashed nearly 50 million cubic meters of gas, sand and ash, its most powerful eruption in a century. The 9th century temple was temporarily closed to tourists during the cleaning process.
