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.

its about an hour drive from our hotel in Yogyakarta City, the temple was big and well kept, it gets really busy with tourist obviously, but it is very understandable since it is indeed a UNESCO world heritage. You can feel the calming atmosphere despite with the crowd

This temple is enormous! There's a garden around the temple. Surf around and you will eventually reach the temple. At the temple, the views were amazing no matter from the bottom or the top of the temple. There carvings are so incredible that it has got its own meaning along the beginning to the end of the temple. Do hire a guide to tell you more about the story of the carving! Worth the visit!

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.
