Borobudur is one of the best places you can visit in magelang. I’ve visited this temple for the second time, but it still manages to amaze me.

the size of this temple is gigantic, and it has a lot of history behind it. You can ask the person there, or look it up on google. There is a long set of stairs leading you to the top of the temple. You may think that it's going to exhaust you, it doesn't feel that much of an exercise. Besides, there are a lot of carving on the walls of the temple. You can go straight for the top, or stop by on one of the floors and admire the carvings. Once you got to the top, you'll be rewarded with the scenery or the dozens of stupa (mound) surrounding the top dome. there is a second set of stairs, leading you to the exit.

even though to get to the temple is a long walk, it is still an awesome experience, seeing a literal historical temple in front of your eyes. I would definitely visit for the third time if I had the chance.

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

Borobudur temple is the world’s biggest Buddhist monument, an ancient site widely considered to be one of the world’s seven wonders. Been here for about more than 20 times and I am very proud of it.

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.
