Borobudur Extension from Bali

Duration
2 Days
Prices From:
US$ 785

Set against the stunning backdrop of the volcano Mount Merapi, the temple sites around Yogyakarta make an ideal 2-day extension trip from Bali.


Originally built in the 8th century, Borobudur is the largest Buddhist temple complex in the world. Still an important pilgrimage spot for worshippers today, the site's precise origins remain a mystery. Rediscovered in 1814 by British governor Thomas Raffles, the site consists of nine individual platforms, decorated by 2,672 relief patterns and 504 Buddha statues.

Similarly, and also rediscovered around the same time by Raffles, Prambanan is the largest Hindu temple site in Indonesia. Over 240 temples originally stood here, including the incredible 47-metre-high Shiva temple, which towers over the site today.

A visit to these two extraordinary spiritual sites is highly recommended when visiting Bali or when travelling throughout Indonesia.

Day 1

Arrive Yogyakarta

Pick up at your hotel in South Bali, transfer to airport for flight to Yogyakarta, Upon arrival at Adi Sucipto Airport Yogyakarta, our Tour Guide will be waiting for you at the main gate, holding the sign board with your name. After a warm welcome the guide will take you directly to proceed to explore famous Buddhist Temple of Borobudur, listed as one of the 7 wonders of the world, comprised of thousands of volcanic and river stone blocks. The temple was built in the 8th and 9th centuries entirely by human labor and took more than 75 years to complete. The walls and balustrades are decorated with fine low reliefs and the circular platforms are covered with 72 stupas, each containing a statue of Buddha. After your visit you continue with a visit to the nearby Mendut temple. Older than Borobudur, this pyramid-shaped temple houses three impressively carved stone statues. The statues are thought to be some of the most impressive and best preserved in their original location in Java. You'll also make a stop at Pawon temple, a jewel of Javanese temple architecture. Most probably, this temple served to purify the mind prior to ascending Borobudur. Return to hotel and Rest of the day is free at your own

Day 2

Departure

This morning you start with a visit to the Sultan's Palace, also known as the Kraton. Built between 1756 - 1790, it is a fine example of traditional Javanese sultanate architecture. As you walk through the various rooms and chambers, you will learn more about this aspect of Javanese heritage and culture. From here you go by becak (this tricycle is the typical local transportation) to the adjacent Taman Sari water palace and garden. This addition to the royal complex was built over 200 years ago by the first Sultan with bathing pools for his harem and then continue to visit Prambanan Temple. The temple compound, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, is the largest Hindu temple site in Indonesia, and one of the biggest in Southeast Asia. It is characterized by its tall and pointed architecture, typical of Hindu temple style, and by the towering central building inside a large complex of individual temples. Then transfer to airport for your onward flight.
