In the footsteps of Nirvana

Borobudur was largely forgotten under layers of volcanic ash until it was re-discovered in 1814. The colossal Buddhist monument dates back to the 9th century. It is a three dimensional visual representation of the Buddhist teachings. From the narrow corridors to the 2600 narrative relief panels, Borobudur will fascinate, shock and excite you. The whole spectacle of life is played out before your eyes. This UNESCO world heritage site looms out of the horizon of luscious green rice fields. The mysticity, the sun and the shadows give a surrealistic tone to the landscape. Borobudur is a strongly oriented, narrated building. It is huge but not imposing at all. The architecture of Borobudur is the most captivating part of the monument. Exploring Borobudur is in fact a spiritual course. The sunrise over Borobudur is spectacular and unique. The encounter between the Volcano and the Buddha takes you to a different spiritual phase altogether. Borobudur is a tale of travel and transformation. Like Ankor Wat in Cambodia, Borobudur is quite exquisite in its detail, landscape and its spirituality.
