It's a great place to be with friends and family. The grandeur architecture made me reflect on the builders determination back in those days. The view from the top of the temple is just majestic and scenic. A must visit attraction if you are in Jogjakarta.

Make the effort to see this at sunrise. Simply stunning. We had a private guide arranged through our hotel and it made the experience very special.

We went on a combined trip Borobudur + Prambanan. We booked transport at our hotel for IDR 140,000. The combined ticket for both sites costed IDR 420,000 - that's a price for foreigners as Indonesians pay IDR 50,000 (sic!). Trip included the sunrise spot at Bukit Barede with a view to Borobudur temple - there we had to pay IDR... More

We wanted to do the sunrise tour of Borobudur. Fortunately or unfortunately it was cancelled due to the Borobudur Marathon. We arrived at 6 am and the roads were already closed. We had to walk for about 2 km to the temple together with school children who were there for events connected to the marathon. On the way in, we... More

This is a stone temple, after all, so I should have got there two hours before I did. Other than that, it was well kept and the grounds were designed in a pleasing fashion. I wish I would have taken the time, despite the heat, to take a guided tour. The brochure gave a bit of info about reliefs studied... More

The temple is quite amazing! I would recommend to make use of the guides they offer when entering. Especially if you want to know more about the history of the temple. The only 'negative' point was that it was over crowded and a lot of school come here so there were kids everywhere. (You have to be up to make... More

We did what most people do, woke up in the wee morning and headed for the temple. Reached there by 4am and took about a 10-15mins walk up to the temple. The weather that day was unfortunately cloudy and hence we didn't get to catch the sunrise. Nonetheless, the view was still amazing and it was definitely worth a visit!

I visited a lot of temples on my journey but this one is just amazing. I went there to see the sunrise. We rented a scooter in Yogyakarta and started driving at 3:30 am. There was no traffic so we arrived with out a stop at 04:45. The stuff is very friendly and in the price included is a Coffee/Tea... More

We woke up before the dawn hoping to catch the magnificent sunrise from inside the Borobudur temple. The day was quite hazy and we couldn't get a good photo of the sunrise. However, we did took quite a few good photos of the silhouettes of the Stupas and Buddha statues. The tour was then completed with an English speaking tour... More
