Borobudur Temple Largest Buddhist temple – Bodobudur is a must see place around Jogjakarta. It takes 60-90 minutes drive from Airport to this temple. However, I recommend that one should stay atleast for one night at the Manohara hotel located in the premises of this complex to really enjoy the beauty and details of the temple and it surroundings.
To enjoy the reliefs and carvings as well crowd free photography, suggest that one reaches this hotel by Friday afternoon and visit the temple before 5pm. It will take about 2-3 hours to really appreciate the structure.
The crowd is at its thinnest during weekday and gets really heavy right from Saturday morning till Sunday evening. Take the sunrise tour package on next day (starting at 4.30 AM) and enjoy the beautiful sunrise from the top of the temple complex. After the sunrise, talk a small walk to the near-by Dagi hills and take a view of this temple complex from a distance. Respect the temple, its intricacy, splendor and its historical and spiritual significance…and please don’t be one of those trying to take your selfie with the idols.
