SUNRISE @ BOROBUDUR TEMPLE
is a great experience. Enjoy yourself a quiet spot to sit and wait for the sun to rise over the horizon from the top of temple, enjoying the serene and spiritual atmosphere that seems to have infiltrated every rock via. As you look out to the hills and forests surrounding you it isn’t hard to imagine how explorers must have felt when they stumbled out of the forest in 1814 to find such a sight lost to the world for almost 500 years. The awe-inspiring monument features the largest and most complete collection of Buddhist relief sculptures on the walls of its seven terraces - all of which detail the story of Buddhist cosmology.
On a high hill vertically, Borobudur set up towards the sky. It consists of five large square terraces, with three circular platforms on top of them, and then a magnificent stupa at the very top. Borobudur is best seen at dawn, when the air is fresh and full of birdsong. As the mist begins to lift, the sun scales the surrounding volcanoes and terraced fields, and highlights the stone reliefs and the many faces of Buddha. Glimpsing Borobudur for the first time is often a deeply felt emotional experience.
