    A ninth-century Hindu temple had recently been unearthed on the campus of the Islamic University of Indonesia.

    Researchers surmised that the temples were preserved in pristine condition because they were buried in a volcanic eruption a century after they were built. The lava from Mount Merapi, about 7.5 miles to the north, is believed to have filled a nearby river before flowing over the temples, minimizing damage.
    University planned to showcase the Hindu temple prominently in front of a library to be built around it, in the shape of a half-circle.
