Borobudur differs markedly with the general design of other structures built for this purpose. Instead of building on a flat surface, Borobudur is built on a natural hill. The building technique is, however, similar to other temples in Java. With no inner space as in other temples and its general design similar to the shape of pyramid, Borobudur was first thought more likely to have served as a stupa, instead of a temple. A stupa is intended as a shrine for the Lord Buddha. Sometimes stupas were built only as devotional symbols of Buddhism. A temple, on the other hand, is used as a house of deity and has inner spaces for worship. The complexity of the monument's meticulous design suggests Borobudur is in fact a temple. Congregational worship in Borobudur is performed by means of pilgrimage. Pilgrims were guided by the system of staircases and corridors ascending to the top platform. Each platform represents one stage of enlightenment. The path that guides pilgrims was designed with the symbolism of sacred knowledge according to the Buddhist cosmology.
This excursion is very favourite one. Start by pick up service at the port and directly drive to Borobudur temple. For group, a police escort will be organized for save drive due to traffic and narrow road to the temple. Ideal time is maximum 09.00 AM departure from the port and will be right back at the port around 4.00 AM. Many picturesque along the way but please try to take a picture or make sports after visiting the temple.
Lunch can be served at local restaurant or simply in box will be highly recommended. This guided tour, we do not suggest to have only driver with you, can be indivudually or group in coach.
