Jogja, a city full of meaning, a lot of history. Too many words to be inscribed here, to be writing, Jogja seems to be a lot of meaning. Visiting Jogja means learning to understand history. History of the formation of taste, the history of the philosophy of life, the history of the essence of the formation of personality. So also this time, after repeatedly visiting Jogja whether it’s for business or tourism, this time I can visit one of the tourist attractions that became one of the wonders of the world. “Borobudur“, became the best places to travel in July and one of the reasons for tourists to vacation to Jogjakarta.
Borobudur in the holiday season becomes the best places to travel in July And August because at that time is a holiday for school children from elementary to intermediate level. As is known that the Borobudur Temple is a Buddhist temple located in the area of Borobudur, Magelang, Central Java and precisely located 40 km west of the city of Yogyakarta. Borobudur temple is shaped stupa, founded around 800 AD in the reign of Syailendra.
Not much I can say when I saw this Borobudur Temple because if you read the reference to Borobudur Temple is very long and I think my friends can access it through the internet and books related to the history of Yogya and associated with the Borobudur Temple.
I took some of the references, Borobudur Temple is the largest Buddhist temple in the world. In addition, Borobudur is a temple with the largest and most complete Buddhist relief collection in the world, consisting of six square terraces on top of which there are three circular courtyards, and on temple walls decorated with 2,672 reliefs and there are 504 Buddha statues.
As a place of religious pilgrimage for Buddhists, Buddhists every year are always gathered in this Borobudur Temple to commemorate the Tri Suci Waisak, both from Indonesia or from abroad.
From some references, Borobudur is a masterpiece of Indonesian Buddhist art, for example, the achievement of the harmony of architectural and aesthetic techniques of Buddhist art in Java. This Borobudur Temple building was inspired by dharma ideas from India, including stupa and mandala, and believed to be a continuation of local elements. The terraced punden megalithic structure, also called the storied pyramid found from the Indonesian prehistoric period, is a blend of indigenous ancestor worship and the struggle to attain nirvana in Buddhism.
