Yogyakarta is a beautiful city and the most popular tourist destination on Java, largely thanks to its proximity to the temples of Borobudur and Prambanan. The city is a center of art and education, offers some good shopping and has a wide range of tourist facilities. Borobudur is one of the greatest Buddhist monuments in the world. Founded by a king of the Saliendra dynasty, it was built to honour the glory of both the Buddha and its founder, a true king Bodhisattva.
The name Borobudur is believed to have been derived from the Sanskrit words vihara Buddha uhr, meaning the Buddhist monastery on the hill. Borobudur temple is located in Magelang, Central Java province, and is about 45 km from Yogyakarta city. Prambanan, named after the village, is the biggest temple complex in Java. It is actually a huge Hindu temple complex about 17 km north-east of Yogyakarta. Dedicated to the three great Hindu divinities, this temple with its decorated reliefs is an outstanding example of Siva art in Indonesia and the region. More info please visit www.setiatrans.com
