BOROBODUR
When in Yogyakarta a visit to the huge Buddhist Temple of Borobodur is a must see. This rates along with Angkor Wat as being one of the greatest Buddhist Temples in South East Asia. "Borobodur" is one of the Worlds Ten Great Temples".with six levels to see ,a lot of climbing.
I travelled out to Borobodur in a (shared rental taxi with six other travellers).this was booked easily at local agent...upon arrival , as usual the driver waited at a designated place and pick up time.the cost for the day hire was very cheap.
Take along plenty of water as this can be very hot as there is no shade..There is a reasonable entry fee mainly for "sarong hire (as this is a temple) make sure that you dress appropriately when visiting these Temples..

This is a "UNESCO"World Heritage site

Address: Located 40 odd kilometers northwest of Yogyakarta
Directions: Borobudur is best seen at sunrise..as this being the most popular time expect a lot of people as this is the most visited site in Indonesia. so many statistics here to list needless to say this is a magnificent Temple..
