Eye opening experience at Borobudur Temple

Eye opening experience at Borobudur Temple – We booked a guided tour as the temple was quite far from where we were staying (Jogja). When we arrived at site, many local tourists have already crowded the place. Separate ticket counter for local and international tourists. Cost us about USD18 per head. The structure was actually bigger than i thought.

Luckily we have the guide with us to explain the history of the temple. It was a bit crowded at the staircase area. And the staircase was a bit steep I must say. The guide did an excellent job of explaining to us the meaning of the carvings and statue found on the walls of the temple. We climbed all the way to the top (where permissible) and had an excellent view of the surrounding forest and village.

We actually came a week before Waisak (Buddha’s Birthday) celebration so there were some preparations around to build tents and stages. There will be souvenir sellers once you come out of the temple complex. They are quite persistent to sell you their things and may follow you tp quite a distance. Politely refuse of you don’t want to buy from them.
Important tip: consider hiring a guide if you are not familiar with buddhism or the temple history. Otherwise it’s just gonna be an ordinary photo-taking trip.
