Borobudur Temple Amazing stone carvings – Went there april 4,2016 from yogyakarta using the local bus 2A to Jombor bus station,then a local bus to borobudur bus station, walked about 2 blocks to the entrance. Very easy access. No AC on the local bus to borobudur, but was cool enough with the windows opened.
Arrived at 10:30 am, decided to have an early lunch before entering the site and bought water.
International entry reasonable for the site. AC in the entry building with clean rest room.
Beautiful grounds and garden leading to the temple.
The site was truly amazing, the details in the stone carvings on the various levels were incredible. This site is very well preserved and restored, beyond my expectation.
Took the time to see each stone panel in detail, then it started to thunder and rain. This was a blessing as the temperature cooled and allow a comfortable quiet viewing of the carvings.
Stayed till almost 4:00 pm just at the site, didn’t have time to visit the museums. Next time.
The site is big enough and the thousands of rock carving panels allows you to enjoy at your pace and avoid the crowds. Bring three litres of water and an umbrella if it is a sunny day. There are shade areas with seats at the base to allow you to recover from the heat.
This site rates up there with Ankor Wat. We are glad we made the trip from Bali to see this.
