GERMAN TEXT BELOW:

Es ist 5 Uhr morgens. Die relative Kühle des Morgens macht der schwülen Hitze des Tages Platz. Der Park ist noch menschenleer. Im nahen Dschungel hört man abwechselnd die Schreie der Affen, das Prusten der Elefanten und das Piepen der Vögel. Im Hintergrund verbreitet der rauchende Vulkan Merapi eine majestätische und Ehrfurcht gebietende Stimmung. Ich stehe neben einem der vielen glockenförmigen und mit Buddhastatuen versehenen Stupas am Fuße des Borobudur. Einem ebenso großen wie großartigen buddhistischen Tempel in der Nähe von Yogyakarta auf Java, Indonesien. Nach der Erbauung im 8.-9. Jahrhundert wurde er im Laufe der Zeit von Vulkanasche begraben, bis man ihn im 19. Jahrhundert wiederentdeckte und wieder zu altem Glanz verhalf.

Borobudur is one of the world heritage.

here some info about borobudur :

In 1956 UNESCO began an assessment process for the full scale restoration of the monument. Finally in 1968, a major plan to restore Borobudur was created, and this huge project involved a complete overhaul of the monument up until 1983. The unsteady foundations were stabilized, everything was meticulously cleaned and a major drainage system installed. After the works were finished, UNESCO formally listed Borobudur as a World Heritage Site in 1991. Since then, the profile of Borobudur has increased enormously, and it is now a major international tourist attraction. Its statues, reliefs and stupas have spawned millions of replicas which adorn properties worldwide.

The borobudur temple is an amazing place. i can feel the vibe being there. The unique things is there's a morning tour to see the sunrise from the temple. I think you have to stay in Manohara hotel to join this tour.

Enjoy Borobudur! 8)
