Borobudur and Prambanan Temple in Java – our Best Pictures
When you live in Bali you have to visit some sights in Indonesia. Besides the Gili Islands of Lombok we also traveled to Java. We made a trip to the famous Borobudur and Prambanan temples and walked around Yogyakarta city.
We booked a flight from Denpasar to Yogyakarta which took us only one hour. Directly at the airport we organized a local driver who brought us to all sights the whole day.
The Prambanan temple is only 15 minutes away from the airport so we started with that. This beautiful, old and hindu temple area was partly destroyed by the last big earthquake. But builders are on work repairing all damages.
From Prambanan we drove around two hours by car to the Borobudur temple. This temple is buddhistic and you can see this from the hundreds of Buddhas there.
The temple is build like a pyramid and covered with plenty of religious stories. The higher you get, the more wealthy the figures appear.
When you reached the top, you can see those famous bells. One buddha is sitting in every single bell.
Borobudur is one of the UNESCO world heritages and so an absolute highlight in your holidays in Indonesia!
Btw: Yogyakarta isn’t worth a long visit.
