Morning at 07.30 AM, start the trip to visit Borobudur. This huge Buddhist pyramid is a Buddhism's largest shrine in Indonesia, built in the 9th century. Located northwest of Jogyakarta, Borobudur was completed in the second half of the ninth century. Borobudur was unknown and neglected for almost a thousand years, covered under thick layers of volcanic ash. From a far Borobudur looks like a huge but ordinary stone construction. But from nearby we can see that it consists of hundreds of wonderfully detailed statues and sculptures, representing Buddhist teachings mixed with images of Javanese life of a thousand years ago.
Then we proceed to visit the stunning Prambanan Temple, one of the most beautiful Hindu temples in Indonesia. The local people also call the temple as the Roro Jonggrang, meaning the temple of the slender virgin. According to the local belief, the temple was a beautiful virgin, who was cursed after ignoring her promise. Back to Jogjakarta, and we will take you to witness how the locals make their wonderful batik and the craftsmen at work in a silver handicraft factory. Stay at hotel in Jogja.
