A World Heritage Site and the largest Buddhist shrine in the world, Borobudur Temple features nine stacked, six square, and three circular platforms, crowned by an impressive central dome. Erected in the 9th century from over two million stone blocks, this temple features over 2,600 relief panels and more than 500 Buddha statues. The central dome alone contains 72 Buddha figures arranged around a stupa, a mound-like structure designed as a place of prayer and meditation. Begin your tour at the eastern entrance and proceed clockwise, a traditional way to move inside Buddhist monuments. Admission into the shrine also allows you to enter the nearby archeological museum, displaying thousands of photographs and carvings.

  • A massive temple but not allowed to visit from inside, knows as Buddhist temple presently but looks like a Jain or Hindu temple originally. Wish to visit again when ever allowed to go up.

  • In Borobudur Temple you can see relics of the past that hold a lot of history and mystery,You can learn it too.There are many facilities there such as tour guides, trains, traditional craft shops, riding a horse, facilities for foreign tourists, lots of miniatures and explanations that can add to our knowledge even though we don't hire a guide.I feel this place is special because the building holds a lot of mysteries and deep history. And also Borobudur Temple is one of the 7 wonders of the world.Borobudur temple is a very educational and fun place.I really recommend this place to many people out there because you can get a lot of things from this place, especially those who like history.

  • It was amazing - despite the long drive to get here & the morning leg day in the dark, the aftermath was amazing! would definitely drag my friend to see the sunrise again. do book with look cuz its like better & well-planned. no regrets, please visit this place.
  • I went to this best historic place in Central Java with my family. We went there in the middle of my school holidays. My family and I chose this place because we thought that this place could be the best of both a relaxed and a spot to study history. The whole way to the temple, I already felt so happy because the area is a clan. To enter the Borobudur temple, we bought four tickets, and it's not expensive compared to other places. I felt so amazed by the beautiful statues and relief. I could see beautiful scenery on the top of the temple.
  • Beautiful scenery and Intricate design. Sadly because of the pandemic you can't go up on the temple. Overall it's a very pleasurable experience. 5/5 Would Recommend
