– Had an opportunity to visit this 9th century Buddhist Temple. Amazing Architecture and think of building such a massive structure is mind-boggling.
There are separate tickets for locals and foreigners (like in many other places). Ticket for foreigners is 10 times more than that of locals. For this you get either a cup of Tea or Coffee or a small bottle of mineral water.
Like most religious places, unfortunately, Borobudur is also plagued with money making people. Walking sticks, umbrellas and guides are available for rent. If it going rain, it is better to hire one from inside the temple as there are simply not shelters.
On exiting the temple, you will be surrounded by people trying to sell you stuff. Keep walking and if you are really interested, you could buy the stuff at a lower price in shops further to the exit.
