BOROBUDURSUNRISE COMBINE CANDIREJO VILLAGE TOUR BY VINTAGE BIKE OR ANDONG
TOUR CODE : BSODT-013
You will leave your hotel at around 03.30am and be driven the 1 hours or so to the 8th century Buddhist relic of Borobudur. Find yourself a quiet spot to sit and wait for the sun to rise over the horizon enjoying the serene and spiritual atmosphere that seems to have infiltrated every rock. As you look out to the hills and forests surrounding you it isn’t hard to imagine how explorers must have felt when they stumbled out of the forest in 1814 to find such a sight lost to the world for almost 500 years. The awe-inspiring monument features the largest and most complete collection of Buddhist relief sculptures on the walls of its seven terraces - all of which detail the story of Buddhist cosmology. It was thought to take 75 years to complete and although it’s exact purpose is still unclear it was evidently a shrine to Lord Buddha and guide to the noble path of the Buddha. It is thought that Borobudur was abandoned following the 14th century decline of Buddhist and Hindu kingdoms in Java, and the Javanese conversion to Islam. It was then completely covered in a deep layer of volcanic ash following the eruption of nearby Mount Merapi and worldwide knowledge of its existence was only sparked in 1814 by Sir Thomas Stamford Raffles, the then British ruler of Java. Three kilometres to the east of Borobudur is Candi Mendut. This Buddhist temple was built in 824AD by King Indera of the Cailendra dynasty. There are some wonderful scriptures on the walls and the architecture is fascinating - well worth a visit before you leave the area. On your return from Borobudur you will stop to see a local village at work. Perched in a valley beside a river, the village of Candijero has a great setting and you will explore on the back of a horse and cart. It has numerous cottage industries you can see as well as the opportunity to meet some of the locals. You may see people tending the fields, making noodles or tofu for market and constructing small hand crafted souvenirs.
The village works with a local tourism initiative and this is a good way to provide a small amount of extra income for the local population. The smiles and waves you receive from everyone you pass are a sight to treasure and the rural atmosphere is a refreshing change from in Java’s normally crowded towns and cities.
