The detail of the carvings and the sheer size of this 1300yo temple is very impressive and when you consider that this was lost under volcanic ash for hundreds of years and buried in an Indonesian jungle its in amazing condition. The 2.5hr journey there from Semarang will be something I remember forever.

The temple is situated in a volcanic valley and is surrounded by working rice paddies which make a great bike ride if you are around for a few days. The temple is just magnificent, just by the sheer size and the architecture phenomena of the design. It consists of various layers and each structure has a buddha inside, if you... More

Borobudur is the reason why I plan to travel solo to Java island, Indonesia. The entrance fee for both Prambanan & Borobudur is $30. If you buy separately it will be more expensive. I was very lucky to visit such an awesome place. I consider its one of the wonders of the world. Anyway its listed in UNESCO World Heritage... More

Everytime I was back to this temple, I always remember my first visit with the school trip, long time ago. It's been changed a lot now. The area is bigger, there is more rules ( wearing sarong etc.). And one thing annoyed me very much is the entrance fee. I understand that tourist will pay whatever the price to visit... More

it was a great historical place in indonesia. they provide free sarong for us to wear before we go up to the temple, but we have to return the sarong after we go down. there was a lot of souvenir shop with a wide range of price.

Spectacular temple and beautiful scenary! I preferred this over Parambanan, you can breath tranquility and spirituality when you are up there and look to the surroundings. It is a musto do if you come to Java.

The views were very good, but due to the early morning cloud, we didn't get a spectacular sun rise shot. However it is well worthwhile. Get here early to avoid the heat of the day. There are a lot of steps, and gets busy with tourists. We will return.

What an amazing place! I visited with friends on a tour arranged through our hotel. We arrived at 5am to catch the sunrise. It was lovely and peaceful and not too hot or crowded. Unfortunately the haze obscured the actual sunrise but to see dawn break over this structure is truly breathtaking. 2 tips. There a lot of steep steps... More

Since long time ago Candi Borobudur has been cited as one of the seven wonders of the world and I cannot argue about it. The stones and the landscape around the candi are magnificient. The view makes me wonder how ancient people could built something magnificent like this. Definitely one of the must-visited place if you come to Indonesia.
