And now, Borobudur temple is the most visited tourist destination in Indonesia. The temple is maintained by UNESCO with ongoing maintenance and repairs. This effort is to keep Borobudur always in the best condition.
The architectural style of this temple is very unique, featuring layers with very detailed carved reliefs. Each relief panel tells a different story that leads visitors to walk around in a clockwise direction and climb up to the top of the temple. After reaching the top, visitors will find a contrasting architectural change. At the top, all that is visible are the stupas, a large stupa in the middle surrounded by 72 small stupas. In each small stupa there is a statue of Buddha with the "Dharma Cakra Mudra" hand gesture. On this top floor, visitors are also treated to a stunning panorama of the surrounding area.
Borobudur Temple and surrounding panorama are best seen at dawn. Don't forget, bring your best camera. Enjoy yourself in the beauty of the morning light in a quiet place, sit and wait for the sun to rise.
