Borobudur Temple UNESCO site and well worth the visit – Along with the Prembanan temple, this 9th century Buddhist temple is the reason why most tourists go to Yogyakarta. Do not miss this as it is truly an awesome sight and be sure to hire a guide to take you through the complex – they are well worth the cost and make the 2 hour tour very enjoyable and educational. The temple complex itself is huge and spectacular, offering amazing views of not only itself, but also of the surrounding areas. Quite a bit of this temple had been damaged by an earthquake and it is still under reconstruction. There are large blocks of limestone lying about, waiting to be relocated to th
eir original place in the structure of the temple. This gives one a good feel for the enormous task of restoring such a huge structure – A must see on your trip.
