40 km from Yogyakarta is the temple of Borobudur.
This temple is the main remnant of Hindu art in Indonesia, the largest Buddhist reliefs in the world. Built around 850 under the Cailendra dynasty, he had disappeared beneath vegetation. It was not until the nineteenth century by Sir Thomas Raffles rediscovered the highly damaged by flooding the plant ...

A first restoration was successfully completed in 1911, but the temple of Borobudur is far from being saved. It was registered as World Heritage by UNESCO.

If you stay in Yogyakarta, I advise you to visit, via an agency, two sites (Borobudur and Prambanan) in one day. You have about 2 hours on each site. It is enough unless you are love of Buddhist art in which case it is better to rent a car and visit one temple by day.

We recommend the very seriously agency "Sosro Tour & Travel" in the Backpacker district of Sosrowijayan Wetan street (email: It also organizes tours of the Javanese volcanoes known if you don't want to organize yourself.

About two temples visit (Borobudur and Prambanan), the price in 2009 is 80.000/pers (transport by minibus + driver + small meals for lunch) + 2 tickets to the temples (100 000 Rp / pers / temple).
