Travel Itinerary :
Day 1. BOROBUDUR & RICEFIELD TOUR [6 HOURS]
Visit : Ricefield and Farmer’s Activities, Borobudur Temple
Upon arrival in Yogyakarta, meet and greet by our tour guide then together we drive to Borobudur for exploring the magnificent Borobudur Temple.
Eventhough there is no written record of who built Borobudur or of its intended purpose. The construction time has been estimated by comparison between carved reliefs on the temple’s hidden foot and the inscriptions commonly used in royal charters during the eight and ninth centuries. Borobudur was likely founded around 800 AD. This corresponds to the period between 760–830 AD, the peak of the Sailendra dynasty in central Java, when it was under the influence of the Srivijayan Empire. The construction has been estimated to have taken 75 years and been completed during the reign of Samaratungga in 825.
Afterwards we will also explore the rice fields surrounding the temple. This easy walk explores the route follow old pathways amongst shady bamboo groves and village gardens before entering a wide, open landscape of rice terraces and palms.
