Borobudur is an hour away from Yogyakarta. Some groups prefer to go on a day trip just to see the Temple. However, I strongly recommend that you stay at least a night in the Borobudur Village and join the Borobudur Sunrise Tour.

The Village is home to the most beautiful resorts, with Javanese-inspired architecture integrated with nature, that we have ever seen in Indonesia. And, Indonesian food which we love abound in the Central Java Area. 

Here are my initial notes on how to plan your awesome Borobudur Experience…

BOROBUDUR Sunrise Experience (The Largest Buddhist Temple in the World)

BOROBUDOR - The Biggest Buddhist Temple in the World Guide Read More: https://www.ourawesomeplanet.com/awesome/2012/10/borobudor-buddhist-temple.html

BOROBUDUR is the largest Buddhist temple in the world, located in the Borobudur village, Magelang Regency, Central Java Province, Indonesia. It was renovated from 1973-1983 to preserve the temple for the next 1,000 years and was subsequently listed in 1991 as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

BOROBUDUR is an ancient temple inherited by Buddhism after the fall of the Hindu Kingdoms in Java in the 14th century and the Javanese conversion to Islam. It’s a world pilgrimage site during the Buddhists’ holy day of Vesak (like Christmas) based on the lunar calendar, which falls in the month of April or May.

Its name means Monastery on a High Place — was derived from two words: Boro means temple from the Sanskrit word “Byara” and budur means above the hill from the Balinese word “Beduhur”.

The best time to go is during sunrise when the temple is beautifully lighted by the sun, the environment is cool and there are relatively less number of tourists.
