A day trip from Semarang to Borobudur

Pick-up is at 8:30 a.m. at Semarang Seaport Tanjung Mas and the journey takes about 2.5 hours south to the temple complex of Borobudur, the largest Buddhist shrine in the world, and then to the temple complexes Candi Mendut and Candi Pawon. Return to the seaport in Semarang.

Explanation:

The colossal pyramid is located around 105 kilometers south of Yogyakarta on the island of Java in Indonesia. Borobudur was recognized as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 1991. It is considered the most important building of Mahayana Buddhism in Java.

The stupa was built between 750 and 850 during the rule of the Sailendra dynasty. When the center of power in Java shifted to the east in the 10th and 11th centuries (perhaps also in connection with the eruption of the Merapi 1006), the complex fell into oblivion and was buried by volcanic ash and overgrown vegetation. In 1814 it was rediscovered; Europeans brought them back to light in 1835. A restoration program from 1973 to 1983 brought large parts of the complex back to its former glory.

A total of nine floors tower on a square base of 123 m length. On the walls of the four stepped tapered galleries there are bas-reliefs with a total length of over five kilometers, which describe the life and work of Buddha. Above it there are three concentrically tapering terraces with a total of 76 stupas, which frame the main stupa of almost 11 m in diameter.

The building was restored from 2011 to 2017 with financial and material aid from the Federal Republic of Germany.
