Literal translation for title: The Secret of Borobudur
Young Pei Fen departs from China to Borobudur, after reading his father’s will that tells of a secret book on the legendary Borobudur Temple in Central Java. His mission is to attain the urn containing the cremated ash of Siddharta Gautama. At the site, Gandha Soewastie tries to stop him. When Pei Fen is about to grab the urn, he falls unconscious due to poisonous gas. Then Gandha helps him since he owes Pei Fen's father for his life. Finally, Pei Fen realizes his error, and decides to become a priest guarding the temple.
Amongst the cast, Olive Young was originally from Shanghai, China. Panorama magazine later attributed the high cost of hiring Olive Young as a reason for Nansing Film Corporation to go bankrupt after its one and only film production.
Critic, Kwee Tek Hoay, attacked the film for its blurry picture quality. He also said: "there is no need for these whole brutal lines, it will only bore audiences who already understand". This later criticism referred to the language used by the Chinese girl when she converses with Gandha and the inn-keeper.
