ACTIVITY SUMMARY

UNESCO Heritage Borobudur Temple and Ancient Hindu Temple Prambanan

ACTIVITY DETAILS

In the morning, meet with your local guide and then drive to Borobudur, 42 kilometers west of Yogyakarta. With your guide, explore this massive Buddhist Temple- the largest in the world- and discover the incredible history behind its construction. Comprised of thousands of volcanic and river stone blocks, the temple was assembled entirely by human labor and took more than 75 years to complete. These days, this UNESCO Heritage site is still visible in its full glory- with magnificent carvings and an unusual, yet surprisingly beautiful bulk structure. Continue with a visit to nearby Mendut temple. Older than Borobudur, this pyramid-shaped temple houses three impressively carved stone statues. You’ll also visit Pawon temple, a simple yet beautiful monument known for its precise symmetry. After your lunch at a local restaurant, head back to Jogjakarta to explore Yogyakarta old city by visiting the Sultan Palace, Taman Sari castle and the bird market. Next, head to the ancient Hindu temples at Prambanan, located 17 kilometers from Yogyakarta. Built in the 9th century, this collection of sharp, jagged temples features three main inner shrines dedicated to the Hindu trinity: Brahma, Vishnu, and Shiva. UNESCO named Prambanan a Heritage Site in 1991. Your guide will explain the history and symbolism of the temples as you walk around. Transfer back to Yogyakarta to your hotel.
