Borobudur Temple, Jogja

The top 3 levels of the 8 level Borobudur temple in Yogyakarta or Jogjakarta. A UNESCO World Heritage temple having stupa and candy style architecture , which essentially means both Hindu and Buddhist styles. Though, I found a greater dominance of Buddhist style. Each of the stupas have a buddha inside.

At sunrise, you can spot the active volcano Mt.Merapi from Borobudur temple. The sunrise on a clear morning is one the very best I have spotted with fumes from Mt.Merapi against a orange twilight sky.

Tip: Sunrise ticket costs 320,000 rupiah while after 6.30 am ticket costs 127,000 rupiah.
