As you know, the Borobudur Temple is one of the greatest Buddhist monuments in the world, and was built in the 8th and 9th centuries. Glad that i have chance to visit the temple :)
The monument is located in the Kedu Valley, in the southern part of Central Java. So if you are in Yogjakarta, this is a must visit place to learn about Indonesian Culture. ⛰️🌏
Borobudur Temple is the largest Buddhist temple in the world. Built in the 9th century, Borobudur Temple is now a magnet capable of attracting millions of tourists every year. Very beautiful place with lots of history. I’d recommend to have a guide or look up the information regarding this temple to learn the significance of the carvings and structures. Come during weekday or early in the morning to avoid the crowds. I came on a weekend one time and it was too crowded. You have to take a flight of stairs to get to the top, it wasn’t so bad but beware of the hot weather though! 🏰⛅️🌟🍃🌿 #roadtrip #urbanexplorer #historicculture #summervacation
Borobudur - Indonesia: This magnificent temple is located in Java. This is the world’s biggest Buddhist monument. We have to use the stairs to walk up to the top. Inside the chedi, there is a Buddha statue. This place used to be considered as one of the world’s seven wonders as well. 🙏🏼🙏🏼🙏🏼
Before going to Yogyakarta, Borobudur was still a mystery to me. Although I was full of yearning for this mysterious country, I have never had the opportunity to set foot. When people talk about Indonesia, I only know Bali. And Borobudur, it is the business card of Yogyakarta, and it is the first impression of the world. It is in my heart, not a broken wall, not a poor one, but a miraculous civilization.
Into Borobudur, at 4 o'clock in the morning, the sunrise is gradually rising, and then slowly becomes a cloudless blue sky. It is also a famous attraction in Yogyakarta, Indonesia, one of the world's cultural heritages, and the largest Buddhist architectural relic in the world. It is also known as the Great Wall of China, the Taj Mahal in India, and the Angkor Wat in Cambodia. Walking down the stupa and looking up, as if feeling a gentle gaze, encountering the innocent smile of the enthusiastic children
Borobudur Temple is a famous Buddhist temple located in central Java dating from the 8th and 9th centuries. The Borobudur means "the stupa on the hill." The temple can be divided into three tiers: a pyramidal base with five concentric square terraces, the trunk of a cone with three circular platforms and, at the top, a monumental stupa. The walls are decorated with fine low reliefs, covering a total surface area of 2,500 m2. Around the circular platforms are 72 openwork stupas, each containing a statue of the Buddha. The monument was restored with UNESCO's help in the 1970s. There is a museum on the north side of the Great Stupa that elaborates more on the background of the temple.
1.If you are planning to watch sunrise or sunset from Borobudur, you need to buy a tour package ticket from Manohara Hotel which is near the scenic area, and staff will bring you to tour the temple, and the package also includes breakfast or afternoon tea,2. 3.5km due east of Borobudur is Mendut Temple, and it is worth a visit. You can self-drive or by public buses to get there.
