Built for century and its beauty is still everlasting. Worth the effort of waking up in wee hours to catch the sunrise at this historical place. Able to catch the gimp of mountain standing far from borobudur temple. Forming a awesome background for photography lovers. Just beware of the locals who will all crowd to you and trying to sell...

Borobudur exceeded every expectation I had. This 9th century buddhist temple - the biggest buddhist temple in the world - is simply breathtakingly stunning! Men and woman are expected to cover their legs down to knees (and will be given a sarong in order to do so if clothing is not). The site can get pretty crowded over weekends, when... More

Not to be missed in a lifetime, the carvings and view from the top floor with panoramic views and the stupas with the legend " put your hand in and if you touch Buddha , you will have good luck , a wonderful monument to the Buddhist values of life

It's a great place to be with friends and family. The grandeur architecture made me reflect on the builders determination back in those days. The view from the top of the temple is just majestic and scenic. A must visit attraction if you are in Jogjakarta.

Make the effort to see this at sunrise. Simply stunning. We had a private guide arranged through our hotel and it made the experience very special.

We went on a combined trip Borobudur + Prambanan. We booked transport at our hotel for IDR 140,000. The combined ticket for both sites costed IDR 420,000 - that's a price for foreigners as Indonesians pay IDR 50,000 (sic!). Trip included the sunrise spot at Bukit Barede with a view to Borobudur temple - there we had to pay IDR... More

We wanted to do the sunrise tour of Borobudur. Fortunately or unfortunately it was cancelled due to the Borobudur Marathon. We arrived at 6 am and the roads were already closed. We had to walk for about 2 km to the temple together with school children who were there for events connected to the marathon. On the way in, we... More

This is a stone temple, after all, so I should have got there two hours before I did. Other than that, it was well kept and the grounds were designed in a pleasing fashion. I wish I would have taken the time, despite the heat, to take a guided tour. The brochure gave a bit of info about reliefs studied... More

The temple is quite amazing! I would recommend to make use of the guides they offer when entering. Especially if you want to know more about the history of the temple. The only 'negative' point was that it was over crowded and a lot of school come here so there were kids everywhere. (You have to be up to make... More
