Serene experience at Borobudur Temple – An early rise and we headed to Borobudur temple to see the sunrise. After getting instructions, a map and a torch, we set off to climb in the dark to the top of the temple hill. A steepish climb, and difficult if you are unsteady on your feet.
At the top we settled quietly to await the sun. What an ethereal experience. The sun cleared the mountains and lit up the valley. As the ground warmed, a mist rose and slowly enveloped us and then passed on. Then we sat and took in the vista.
As we descended, the heavens opened and we were drenched – but it was still worth looking around at the rest of the temple and learning a bit of its history. It was the rainy season so lots of people were around to rent an umbrella to keep off the worst of the rain – and we soon dried out.
Several of our party couldn’t make the climb, so stayed in the gardens at the bottom. They also enjoyed the sunrise in the beautiful gardens.
Overall a wonderful experience.
