Your visit to Indonesia is not complete if you miss out interesting places including Borobudur in Magelang

 

Borobudur is arguably the most spectacular Buddhist temple in the world, dating back to 8th or 9th century.

The Borobudur stupa is a very big, proportioned, which is two hundred meters in size on a small carved hill. The sculpture represents a solar model of the universe. One can walk through five kilometers of open corridors. Then it leads to a small downhill through six square terrace and there circular ones. The symbol describes the state of nirvana. The stupa is ornamented with 2676 panels and Buddha statues that are 504 in number. This place is not only a shrine but also homage of the Buddha. The visitors start their journey from the base of the temple and move to the third level that is on the top were there are 72 statues of the Buddha and the main monument.

Although it's located in the town of Magelang, the site is easily accessibe from Yogyakarta. Crowds can be huge so better to go for the sunrise tour. It's worth it even though you have to pay more. Location wise quite far from Yogya town around 1.5hrs. If you want to go for the sunrise tour be ready by 330am to travel there. By the time you reach Borobudur it would be around 5am.
