Borobudur Temple Compounds This famous Buddhist temple, dating from the 8th and 9th centuries, is located in central Java. It was built in three tiers: a pyramidal base with five concentric square terraces, the trunk of a cone with three circular platforms and, at the top, a monumental stupa. The walls and balustrades are decorated with fine low reliefs, covering a total surface area of 2,500 m2. Around the circular platforms are 72 openwork stupas, each containing a statue of the Buddha. The monument was restored with UNESCO's help in the 1970s.

An awesome and inspiring destination. The sculptures worth at least a half- day tour. If you go by your own without a guide, you'll definitely miss a lot. I bought a book at the airport before leaving. It helped to refresh the visit.

Exploring this temple is a rare and amazing experience. Not only you can see hundreds of Buddha, or walk miles, or hike up, but the surrounding view is also amazing.

From Jakarta to Yogyakarta: My suggestion is for you to check plane fare and train fare. Sometimes airlines offers promo fare so plane tix might be the same as train tix. It’s only 1.5hours from jakarta to yogya by plane... More

Air Asia flight from Kolkata to Yogyakarta via Kuala lumpur. In Yogyakarta you can get many tour agents who will take you there and back to your hotel.
