Private Tour: Borobudur and Prambanan Temple from Yogyakarta

Select Date and Travelers
2 travelers
    What to Expect
    You are brought to the most spectacular and world’s biggest Buddhist monument complex, Borobudur, built around 800 A.D. Looming out of a patchwork of bottle-green paddies and swaying palm tops, this colossal Buddhist relic is one of the continent’s marvels. After the decline of Buddhism and the shift of power to East Java, the monument was abandoned soon after its completion. For centuries the complex lay forgotten, buried under layers of volcanic ash.
    Climb up to the top, level by level to appease all skill levels, and enjoy a wonderful view on the Menoreh Mountains. Enough time is given to stroll around the complex and to discover its beauty. Afterwards,we continue to visit the nearby located temples such as Pawon Temple and Mendut Temple. Drive to Prambanan village to visit the Prambanan Temple. The Hindu temple of the “slender virgin”, also known as a complex of Lorojongrang, was erected in the 9th century while Java was ruled by the Hindu Sanjayas of Old Mataram in the north.
    It consists of three major temples and shrines in the main area dedicated to respected Hindu’s God Trinity such as Candi Shiva Mahadeva, Candi Brahma & Candi Vishnu. Enough time is given to walk around and observe the beautiful carvings and the neighborhood shrines such as the Candi Palosan and the Candi Sewu. The Ramayana story is carved into the walls of the temples.

    Yogyakarta for me will always be associated with Surantini! Because of her, I savoured its awesomely rich culture, colourful traditional arts (especially the batiks), kind and lovely people and interestingly varied cuisine. Surantini's wealth of knowledge and information and her infectious enthusiasm about her beloved...More

    We really enjoyed the temples Prambanan and Borubudur, both very different and worth seeing. Our tour guide, Nunik, picked us up at 7:30 am at the hotel. We started with Prambanan in the morning and she explained in detail the stories carved into the temples....More

    Just visited this historic temple last week with my wife. These 2 temples have their own story and highly recommended to historical lovers. The entrance fee for both temples is quite high but you can ask your tour driver to buy the ticket for you.
