About the tour

The Syailendra dynasty built the largest Buddhist relics in the world between 780-840 AD. The Syailendra dynasty was the ruling dynasty at that time. This relic was built as a place of Buddhist worship and a place of pilgrimage. This place contains instructions for humans to abstain from worldly desires and towards enlightenment and wisdom according to the Buddha. This relic was discovered by British troops in 1814 under the leadership of Sir Thomas Stanford Raffles. The temple area was completely cleared in 1835. Borobudur was built in the Mandala style which reflects the universe in Buddhist belief. The structure of this building is square with four entrances and a circular center point. When viewed from the outside to the inside, it is divided into two parts, namely the natural world which is divided into three zones on the outside, and the realm of Nirvana in the center. Traveling to Borobudur Temple will always give you unforgettable memories. Its vast area and exotic scenery attracts the attention of tourists. The beautiful stone structure of the temple, the expanse of green grass, and the blue sky, everything become a very interesting unit to be enjoyed when traveling to Borobudur Temple.

I joined a little late, so I missed a lot about history and how it was built. He showed some signed/graphics of mandala and hill it was built on. I wished he could zoom in on some of Buddha’s.
