Borobudur and Prambanan Temples – Indonesia Part II

At 5 am it started our trip to temple area near Yogyakarta.

The curious thing about Indonesia is that the presence of different religious beliefs in the territory didn’t create a contrast between them, nor led to marginalize one in favor of another. Instead, two of the most famous – and utterly beautiful – temples of this country, one Hindu and the other Buddhist, are located incredibly close.

Being in front of Borobudur and Prambanan Temples it’s difficult to describe. Peaceful gardens led us to Borobudur, the world’s largest buddhist temple, and it’s still used as pilgrimate site: the nine stacked platform decorated with more than 500 Buddha statues is simply indescribable.

We literally climbed the big steps to the top of the structure to enjoy the breathtaking view, of the gardens covered by the morning fog.

When we arrived to Prambanan it was late in the morning, so we decided to have a secondo breakfast with fried bananas in front of its beauty. The main colossal structures are surrounded by what they seemed to be the ruins of other smaller temples but, instead of diminishing the  elegance they’d actually given more charme to the whole scene.

Wandering among the small temples was wonderful. Isn’t everything enchanting in Indonesia?
