Borobudur Sunrise Spectacular Sunrise – My friend and I visited Borobudur with the intention to catch the sunrise at the grand compound. We arrived at the temple at about 4.30am while it was still dark and cool outside. The entrance fees for watching the sunrise is quite steep (US$35-40), as compared to the normal entrance fees (US$25). Be prepared to not be able to see clear outlines of the sun rising as it can get quite foggy. But it was a sight to behold (even in the fog and all).
We stayed at Borobudur for a good 4-5 hours even after the run rose. Soaking in the morning sun at the temple, while watching the landscapes around you change and come into full view as the sun rose was one of the best experiences of my trip to Yogyakarta. I would highly suggest going in the wee hours in the morning as the sun can be very punishing mid-day onwards.
Great architecture and full of historical values.
