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.

Exploring this temple is a rare and amazing experience. Not only you can see hundreds of Buddha, or walk miles, or hike up, but the surrounding view is also amazing.

Very much worth it. We had a guide which I recommend as they explain the reliefs so much better than you could imagine yourself. It was not too busy but apparently weekends and holidays can be hectic. There are a lot of stairs up that...More

An absolute must visit along with Angkor Wat, Bagan, and a great option in Indonesia outside Bali. Would recommend visiting soon as a new airport in Jogja is in the works and may become even more crowded than it currently is during the day. Highly...More

It was a very nice experience being here but when we were here, there were too many schools doing their trips which resulted in being too crowded with school children. This place would be better if selfie sticks were banned as it is simply annoying....More

We reached the top before 5:15 sunrise (hour+ drive from Yogyakarta) and took an English speaking guide. I’d highly recommend both. Surrounded by nature, mountains, thankfully preserved by modern day humans! Though 70/72 Buddha statues’ heads are stolen before sanity sunk in. This is an...More

From Jakarta to Yogyakarta: My suggestion is for you to check plane fare and train fare. Sometimes airlines offers promo fare so plane tix might be the same as train tix. It’s only 1.5hours from jakarta to yogya by plane... More

Air Asia flight from Kolkata to Yogyakarta via Kuala lumpur. In Yogyakarta you can get many tour agents who will take you there and back to your hotel.
