Overview

Borobudur Temple Compounds This famous Buddhist temple, dating from the 8th and 9th centuries, is located in central Java. It was built in 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 and balustrades 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.

As the title described, Candi Borobudur is listed under the Unesco Heritage as the largest Buddhist temple in the world. With 150-160 steps to overcome, the climbed was steep and challenging but the feeling was exhilarating upon reaching the peak. The most important highlight of...More

It is an absolute wonder why Borobudur is not more popular. The biggest outside Buddhist temple in the world and yet most of the tourists are locals. Go whether you are Buddhist or not but the architectural Wonder is just unthinkable. It was “lost” for...More

Visiting this amazing place is a speciql experience. Its hard to imagine how people could build such a temple / monument to Buddhism around 1300 years ago, without the tools we have today. A very special place dedicated to Buddha.

I'd love to experience sunrise visit in Borobudur temple. Better to visit without toddlers. All in all, we had a great time at the temple.

This pales in comparison with angkor wat. Not much of a ruin. It was nice just to go because it is a UNESCO heritage site.

At the entrance, Indonesians pay IDR 40.000. Foreigners pay IDR 340.000! We came as a family and had to pay more than a million to enter, but then we got a free bottle of water (yeay!). The temple itself is really nice, but I cannot...More

Depends on what you're looking for, but if you like to see sites with less tourists then the sunrise tour is probably the only option. We arrived at 11 and although not busy there were still loads of tourists (locals, student excursions etc).

It depends. If you are doing a regular daytime tour you don't need to reserve. But if you are doing a sunrise tour it is best to reserve in advance. Your hotel can probably do this for you. Tours will not sell out, so a... More
