About
Borobudur was constructed in the 9th century and abandoned following the 14th-century decline of Buddhist kingdoms in Java and the Javanese conversion to Islam. Worldwide knowledge of its existence was sparked in 1814 by Sir Thomas Stamford Raffles, then the British ruler of Java, who was advised of its location by native Indonesians. Borobudur has since been preserved through several restorations. The largest restoration project was undertaken between 1975 and 1982 by the Indonesian government and UNESCO, followed by the monument's listing as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Visiting to Candi Borobudur
Dec 2020
Visiting Borobudur Temple is a very good idea for adventurers. There we can see how the structure of the temple is and what is special about this Borobudur temple. So far I have been to Borobudur temple about 3-4 times in 2018 and 2019, and every time I go to the temple it's never boring. Around the temple, there are lots of people who sell like; food, drinks, souvenirs, and so on. In addition, many people also visit temples, because at that time they are on a year-end vacation. Borobudur Temple has many steps to the top. When I was at the peak, it felt really good and I could see the city of Magelang to the end. Indeed, this Borobudur temple is very large and interesting to visit while on vacation.

Amazing Borobudur
Aug 2020
It is one of the historical places in Indonesia. Located in Borobudur village, Magelang regency, Central Java. So, it is NOT in Yogyakarta.
However, it is only 1 hour by motorbike from Yogyakarta. 1,5 hrs from the new airport of Yogyakarta (YIA).
The best part to stay nearby is #genthonghomestay

Explore the grandeur
Nov 2019
With the limited time we had in Jogja, my brother and I wanted to see as much as we could and Borobudur Buddhist Temple was on top of the list.

This 9th century temple, is the largest Buddhist temple in the world. This became very apparent to us as we approached the (roughly) 525 stair incline. The climb, while challenging, was worth it to explore the grandeur of the site. The temple itself, consists of nine stacked platforms, (six square and three circular), topped by a central dome. It is decorated with 2,672 relief panels and 504 Buddha statues. The central dome is surrounded by 72 Buddha statues, each seated inside a perforated stupa (mound), and we did our absolute darnedest to view them all.

During our visit, we became aware that a large group of school children on an excursion, were undertaking communication assignments for their English language class. We became popular people to have conversations with, and were happy to help them with this. As a 'thank you', they treated us to a performance of a traditional Indonesian song, which was absolutely beautiful.

I must note, that as we were leaving, it became evident that there were elephants and other animals in captivity at the site. While this did not completely ruin the experience, it did not sit well with us.

Also, be aware there are a lot of peddlers near the entrance/exit that can be very pushy.

Elephant mistreatment
Oct 2019
Seeing the chained up elephants at the end of the trip ruined the entire day. We would not have entered the park had we known these elephants would be there. Why are these elephants needed at the park? Do the right thing and hand them over to animal rescue. How can you teach Buddhism and treat these animals like this? You should be ashamed.

Borobudur Temple Complex, Borobudur, Yogyakarta Region, Indonesia
Mar 2020
On 9th March 2020 I visited Borobudur Temple Complex, which was one of my highlights in my tour itinerary. Though my visit was planned for the afternoon my guide switched to the morning as it was cooler. Besides, rain was forecasted in the afternoon. So best time to visit is in the morning. We set out in our vehicle for the Unesco Heritage Temple Complex as early as 8 a.m. The weather was cool. Once we arrived at the Complex we had to go through ticket admission. Subsequently, we set out on foot to the Borobudur Temple Complex positioned in a beautiful green environment. It was a 15-20 minutes walk from the ticket entrance. The walk was so lovely and soothing. I took my hiking stick with me and it came handy. When we reached the temple my guide decided to use the walkway on the left instead of the temple steps in the centre. I think it was a good idea. The temple is magnificent from the outside and has beautiful 8th-9th century stone carvings. After a few photos we started walking up the temple steps, which are high and steep. However, there are hand rails at the side of the steps so these helped together with my hiking stick. There are 3 levels to climb. At the first level we stopped and walked around to admire the amazing stone carvings, which are intricate in nature. An earthquake years ago did do some damage to the temple complex but it had since been restored. We then continued up to the second level where there are statues of Buddha and huge stupas all round. It was an amazing sight. In each stupa there is a statue of Buddha too. Some of the statues are broken due to damage from the earthquake. The third and highest level has more huge stupas and a main stupa at the centre but we were not allowed in as it was closed to the public. This can be viewed from the second level very clearly. The temple complex and its surroundings is very peaceful and quiet. All in all I had a wonderful experience walking to and around in one of the most breathtaking wonders of the world.

interesting amazine workmanship
Feb 2020
It was very interesting the stone carving was amazing. If you want a guide you must use the site guide and pay extra. Good visit but after Anchor Wat nothing compares.
It was so hot we couldn't see the whole thing and the steps are way higher than normal with also no hand rails. I think you need to be in god shape and we are older and not it great shape.
Living in Arizona we passed on the early morning sunrise.

They didn’t let the public know it was completely closed
Mar 2020 • Solo
Drove all the way from Jogja on a scooter at 3am to experience the sunrise. Looked up e temple online the night before to make sure there were no closures. When I got there they said temple was closed, but zone one was open you just couldn’t go to the inner temple. This was false and barely got within 200 meters of the temple before they had it all blocked off. They should of posted this on their website or made it extremely clear at the gate. They then claimed since my ticket had been scanned I couldn’t get a refund.... I was there for all of 10 mins. Such a disappointment! The staff were not helpful!

A must visit
Feb 2020
This was one on my bucket list and we were happy to see it in the flesh, so to speak. We actually thought it would be on a grander scale.

Unfortunately, they closed off the top two layers of stupas. For luck, you should walk around three times, keeping the main stupa to your right. Steps are not too steep and there are several photo opportunities.

There is also a museum onsite, as well as a market selling souvenirs on the way out.

If you are planning to visit Prabanam the next day, you should buy a combined ticket and save some money. Credit cards are accepted.
