A UNESCO heritage site, Borobudur temple is the epitome of architectural magnificence and cultural reflection from 9th century AD. There would seldom be any reason to visit Jogja if not for Borobudur alone. As a traveller's guiding tip, I would mention below what worked for me. The place and the compound is huge. Acres of land. Maintainance cost is good... More

Our visit was included in a pre-booked package. At the parking lot we were handed over to a local guide with fluently English who brought us to the separate entrance for foreigners. There we received a bottle of water which in no case should be rejected. Later on you may need it urgently. First you walk through a park like... More

Located in Magelang, near Yogyakarta border. Borobudur is the largest Budhist temple. The entrance fee is about 30k IDR for a local tourist and 250k for a foreigner. It was a great temple and architecture. Best to go there in the early morning or afternoon, coz its very hot in the Daylight.

A wish that was fulfilled at last! It was a little late for me since I find it impossible to climb and I was satisfied by just standing at the base and marvelling at the architectural beauty of it. Impossible to believe how industriously and with love the people have carved such a magnificent temple.

Borobudur is even more beautiful in person than any photo can show. It is a wonder of the world and no tourists to Jogjakarta or Indonesia should miss it!

Amazing sunrise coming over the volcano. I suggest the extra effort and expense to get a tour guide and arrange the sunrise tour. It's a magic moment.

Borobudur is one of the greatest Buddhist monuments in the world and also known as the world’s largest Buddhist temple. The monument design was detailed and remarkable. It is perfect to witness the sunset.

I was here on a sunrise tour and this temple is definitely a sight to behold. This should be part of the itinerary of any person traveling to Borobudur. A tip though for international tourists, ask your tour guides/drivers to bring you to a cheaper entrance to the temple. I traveled to this place alone before so I guess my... More
