Discover for yourself the wonder of the Borobudur Temple, a UNESCO World Heritage Site inspired by ancient civilisations and structures over a thousand-years old.
The magnificent Borobudur Temple is the largest Buddhist temple of the world and is an ancient monument widely recognised to be one of the world’s seven wonders. Encounter 504 life-sized Buddha statues, each carved from a single stone. Discover seated Buddha statues beneath each bell-shaped spire. Be amazed by the intricacy of the 2,672 stone relief panels and learn about Buddha’s teachings. Ascend up the steps of the temple and be rewarded with a panoramic view of the lush green fields of central Java, distant hills and volcanoes (Mount Merapi) in the backdrop of the hilltop temple.
Complement your journey by visiting the nearby temples of Mendut and Pawon. The temples of Borobudur, Mendut and Pawon are interestingly situated along one straight line and legend has it that there is a mutual religious relationship between these temples.
