What can you expect:

Borobudur, also transcribed Barabudur is a 7th-century Mahayana Buddhist temple in Magelang Regency, located northwest of Jogyakarta (Indonesia). This temple complex is one of the largest Buddhist monuments in the world and was built in the eighth and ninth centuries AD. It consists of 72 stupas, each with a statue of Buddha. Wonderful to walk through, but certainly also to be seen from a distance.

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.

Borobudur is the largest Buddhist temple in the world, and ranks with Bagan in Myanmar and Angkor Wat in Cambodia as one of the great archeological sites of Southeast Asia. Borobudur remains popular for pilgrimage, with Buddhists in Indonesia celebrating Vesak Day at the monument. Borobudur is Indonesia’s single most visited tourist attraction.
