Borobudur is a majestic ancient Buddhist temple located in the Java region of Indonesia. Believed to be built in the 9th century, it is one of the ancient monuments and world’s biggest Buddhist temple. Amongst the various tourism places in Indonesia, Borobudur is one of the most visited and popular tourist attractions. The climb to the top of the temple is rewarded with amazing views of the greens and hills. It has a sphere like bottom, five square terraces, three circular platforms and a monumental stupa. The architecture has a lot of Indian influence. The structure doesn’t seem to be built from bricks and cement, but it has gigantic blocks interconnected with each other. A close look at these blocks will reveal the intricate stone carvings which is unbelievably stunning.

Borobudur was built when Hindus were in majority in Java. But slowly the influence of Hindus and Buddhist began to decrease and the region was dominated by Islam. Due to this the temple remained abandoned for many years. It has also survived natural calamities like volcanic eruptions & earthquakes. It was only during the British rule in Java, when a British governor took efforts to give another life to this incredible structure. Post that UNESCO and Indonesian government took efforts for its complete restoration. This one of a kind master piece is believed to have all the Buddhist philosophies and its pilgrimage attains path to wisdom. The best way to explore the entire temple is by hiring a tour guide who will explain the history of the temple and also walk you through the entire temple.
