"Good morning, the Borobudur day tour was great! The driver at Jogjakarta was very knowledgeable, informative, and respectful as well as the guides at each location. The price for this trip was well worth it, and I will definitely recommend to others. Thanks so much and have a wonderful weekend!" Keiko Williams - (Japan)"
"We returned from 2 weeks in Bali 6 days ago. I researched day trips from Bali to Borobudur (something on my bucket list for many years) which included Prambanan, before leaving and emailed Agung Tours / Bali Buddy. I was emailed back almost immediately then and also during my stay in Sanur trying to set up the day trip. The cost was less than what other agencies were offering. I ended up paying through Paypal. Everything went smoothly with the morning pickup, and pickup in Jogyakarta. Both drivers were very nice and in Java the driver was willing to stop where we wanted and work around our schedule. Going on vacation is very expensive so the extra tours thrown in really add up but I am so glad I saw Borobudur especially, and Prambanan - even the 2 smaller temples near Borobudur and the smaller temple at Prambanan was very impressive, less people, and like something out of an Indiana Jones movie. Also we went to a Buddhist monastery near Borobudur. Visiting Java even for the day felt like visiting a different country all together. It is very different being Muslim whereas Bali is primarily Hindu. Best of all there are many visitors to Borobudur but mostly locals and school groups from Java and other areas and they were so excited to get pictures with my wife and I - it was a cool experience. Overall excellent experience, and great service. I dropped my reading glasses in the van in Java and the staff had them flown back to Bali and delivered to me. There are a mesmerizing number of temples in Bali but this day trip away is a must. "Jhon Foster - (canada)"

    General Information
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


    *Borobudur Temple             * Borobudur Stupa               * Mendut Temple

    * Pawon Temple          *Keraton(Sultan Palace) * Prambanan Temple * water Castle

    Borobudur, a name deriving from an expression meaning 'Mountain of accumulation of merits of the ten states of Bodhisattva' is commonly thought of as a Buddhist structure, yet its initial construction was planned and conducted by Hindu builders sometime around 775AD. The enormous first and second terraces were completed by a declining Hindu dynasty, construction was then halted for some years, and later, from 790 to 835 AD, the Buddhist Sailendra dynasty continued and finally completed the great stupa. The huge stone mass might have then been permanently abandoned, for it was difficult to adapt to the needs of Buddhism. However, leaving in evidence such an obvious manifestation of Hinduism was probably not deemed politically correct and thus the unfinished Shiva temple was transformed into the world's largest Buddhist stupa. After 832 AD the Hindu dynasty of Sanjaya began to reunify central Java and soon reappropriated the Buddhist monuments built by the Sailendra. Although the Sanjaya were themselves Hindu, they ruled over a Buddhist majority and thus, while some Hindu modifications and ornamentations were done on Borobudur , the stupa remained a place of Buddhist use. During the 10th and 11th centuries there was a transfer of power from central Java to the east, and the great stupa fell into decline. For centuries the site lay forgotten, buried under layers of volcanic ash and jungle growth. In 1815 Europeans cleared the site, in the early 1900's the Dutch began its restoration, and a US$21 million project begun in 1973 completed the work.
     
    Borobudur Temple was built by Sailendra dynasty between 750 and 842 AD. In terms of world wide religious structures, it was very early, it would be 300 years before Cambodia’s Angkor Wat was constructed, 400 years before work began on the great European cathedrals. At this time the Saliendra dynasty built a great number of monuments, both Hindu and Buddhist, in the region there are even temples where the two religions combine, alternating symbolism.
     

    The Borobudur stupa is a massive, symetrical monument, 200 square meters in size, sitting upon a low sculptured hill. The monument represents a Buddhist cosmological model of the universe organized around the axis of mythical Mt. Meru Starting at the eastern gateway, pilgrims circumambulate the stupa, always in a clockwise direction. Walking through nearly five kilometers of open air corridors while ascending through six square terraces and three circular ones, the pilgrim symbolically spirals upward from the everyday world to the nirvanic state of absolute nothingness. The first six terraces are filled with richly decorated relief panels in which the sculptors have carved a textbook of Buddhist doctrines and a fascinating panorama of 9th century Javanese life. Upon the upper three terraces are 72 small stupas, each containing a statue of the Buddha (these statues are usually headless; relic hunters stole many of the heads, others are in museums). Crowning the entire structure is a great central stupa. Representing Nirvana, it is empty.
     
    Prambanan Temple Situated in a picturesque plain dotted with archaeological monuments amongst rice paddies and villages, you will probably be impressed by the Hindu Prambanan temple complex before you even pull in to the park, the height and pointed architecture of the temples gives an impressive welcome.
     
    Prambanan’s status as one of the most extraordinary pieces of South East Asian religious architecture was recognised by a UNESCO in 1991 when it named this complex a World Heritage Site.
     
     

    Candi Mendut (Mendut Temple) is 3 kilometers eastward from Borobudur Temple. It is a Buddhist temple, built in 824 A.D. by King Indera of Cailendra dynasty.
     
     
    There are three big statues inside Mendut Temple, they are:Cakyamuni sitting in cross legged pose with dharma cakra mudra (= turning the wheel of dharma hand pose)Awalokiteswara, a bodhi satwa as human being helper.
    Awalokiteswara is a statue with Amitabha on her crown, Vajrapani. She is holding a red lotus and put on her palm.
    Maitreya, a savior of human beings in the future.


    There are stories for children on its walls. Candi Mendut (Mendut Temple) is frequently used to celebrate the Waisak day every May full moon and the pilgrims from Indonesia and all parts of the world come to this ceremony.It is older than Candi Borobudur. Its architecture is square, and having an entrance on its steps. Its roof is also square and terraced. There are stupas (= bell-shaped structures) on it.
