Magnificent Majestic Borobudur Temple

Magnificent, Majestic Borobudur Temple – Even after doing a good amount of reading on TA and other sites, no amount of photos and descriptions can adequately describe this majestic temple. This colossal monument definitely has the ‘WOW’ factor. Yes, foreigners pay a much, much higher price than the locals, but this didn’t stop us from visiting.

Local guide when you go around the Borobudur temple

I would recommend getting a local guide when you go around the temple to help you understand the ornately decorated relief panels, each with a story of its own. I loved the incredible attention to detail on these panels.

It can be very hot as you ascend the 6 six square terraces and 3 circular ones, so make sure you come adequately prepared. No eating is allowed on the monument. WCs are only available at the bottom of the complex.

Also, as soon as you get down from the car in the car park, you will be approached by the many, MANY traders selling all sorts of things like umbrellas, caps, hand fans and such. If you don’t intend to buy any of this stuff, you must tell them a firm “NO”. Don’t just walk away as they will follow you or say “Later” as some these traders will wait for you at the exit. They can be very, very pushy and adamant which can be rather overwhelming. Also, if you are buying something, make sure you bargain. Don’t be stationary as you are bargaining, keep walking.

All in all, I had a wonderful time in the temple. Only downside was the pushy traders at the entrance and exit.
