A trip to Yogyakarta will surely be incomplete without a visit to the stunning Candi Borobudur. The world's largest Buddhist temple, Borobudur dates back to the reign of Medang Kingdom's Syailendra Dynasty in the 9th century. This UNESCO World Heritage Site will amaze you with its grand structure, intricately-detailed reliefs, and 72 stupas — each containing a statue of the Buddha.
As you ascend the pyramid-shaped main temple, immerse yourself in its richness of history and culture. Look closely, and marvel at thousands of stone carvings depicting Buddhist imagery and Javanese life from thousands of years ago. Go all the way to the top and prepare yourself for a breathtaking view of lush greenery and mountains that awaits you there!
