Our driver picks you up at the hotel around 03.30 am in the morning, and then continues to drive direct to the viewpoint called, Setumbu HILL. Setumbu Hill is the name of a hill located about 4 km west of Borobudur temple. It is one of the best spots to watch the Borobudur sunrise from an altitude of 400 m above sea level. The warmth of the sun in the morning reveals the fog blanket that covers Borobudur Temple and wakes it from its place. After watching sunrise, we proceed to Borobudur temple and stay about two and half hour. Before entering the temple, have breakfast in local restaurant by your own (optional).

The Borobudur Temple Compounds consists of three monuments: namely the Borobudur Temple and two smaller temples situatued to the east on a straight axis to Borobudur. The two temples are Mendhut Temple, whose depiction of Buddha is represented by a formidable monolith accompanied by two Bodhisattvas, and Pawon Temple, a smaller temple whose inner space does not reveal which deity might have been the object of worship. Those three monuments represent phases in the attainment of Nirvana. 

On the way back hotel, we drop by Mendhut temple. It is located in Mendut village, Mungkid sub district, Magelang regency, about 8 km before Borobudur temple. Mendut Temple is a Buddhist temple which was built by Indra king as a first king of Syailendra dynasty in 824 AD, it was stated that the Indra king has built a sacred building called “venunavayang” which means bamboo forest. If this is true, then certainly Mendut temple was built in the 8th century AD. This means this temple earlier than Borobudur Temple, which was built by Samaratungga king, Wangsa Syailendra in 850 M. So, when finished with the temple, continue to transfer back to Hotel in Jogjakarta. Tour ends.
