Borobudur Temple, Yogyakarta

Borobudur Temple, Magelang Yogyakarta

Borobudur Temple is the main purpose and destination of the travelers who visit Jogja. Built in the 8th - 9th centuries by Syailendra dynasty this Mahayana Buddhist temple served as a symbol of the noble values and indigenous cult of ancestor worship and the Buddhist concept of attaining Nirvana. It was abandoned following the 14th century by the declining of Hindu kingdoms in Java and the Javanese conversion to Islam. It gained its worldwide acknowledgement of its existence in 1814 during British colonialism by the British ruler of Java, Sir Thomas Stamford Raffles who was advised of its location by native Indonesians and through his instructions Borobudur has since been preserved through several restorations even after the end of British colonialism in Indonesia. The largest restoration project was undertaken between 1975 and 1982 by the Indonesian government and UNESCO. During this early 20th century, it was discovered that three Buddhist temples in the region, Borobudur Temple, Pawon and Mendut, are positioned along a straight line so it was concluded that a ritual relationship between these three temples must have existed, even though the exact ritual process is remaining unknown. 
The temple was designed in Javanese Buddhist architecture but also demonstrates the influences of Gupta art that reflects India's influence on the region, yet there are enough indigenous scenes and elements incorporated to make "Borobudur" uniquely Indonesian. It consists of nine stacked platforms, six square and three circular, topped by a central dome which is surrounded by 72 Buddha statues, each seated inside a perforated stupa. This majestic temple is decorated with 2,672 relief panels and 504 Buddha statues, and an extensive system of stairways and corridors with 1,460 narrative relief panels on the walls and the balustrades. It is the world's largest Buddhist temple as well as one of the greatest Buddhist monuments in the world and it has the largest and most complete ensemble of Buddhist reliefs in the world which made it  pronounced as one of the world heritage by UNESCO. The monument is both a shrine to the Lord Buddha and a place for Buddhist pilgrimage that is why this wonderful temple is still being one of the premier tourist destinations of pilgrimage for Buddhists all over the world. The journey for pilgrims begins at the base of the monument and follows a path around the monument and ascends to the top through three levels symbolic of Buddhist cosmology: Kāmadhātu (the world of desire), Rupadhatu (the world of forms) and Arupadhatu (the world of formlessness). 

It is located on Jl. Badrawati, Borobudur, Magelang, Central Java. It is approximately 40 kilometres northwest of Jogja and 86 kilometres west of Surakarta.

Pawon Temple, Yogyakarta

Pawon Temple, Yogyakarta

Pawon temple, Yogyakarta is a Buddhist temple have been one of the destination place in Yogyakarta tour. It is located between two other Buddhist temples, Borobudur which is located 1.75 km to the northeast and Mendut which is located 1.15 km to the southwest. Its straight line location suggesting there was a symbolic meaning that binds these three temples. That is why both Pawon and Mendut are called uppa ungga or part of Borobudur Temple. Pawon built during the Syailendra dynasty in 8th - 9th centuries; but examining the detail and style of its carving, this temple is slightly older than Borobudur.

The temple slightly faces northwest and stands on a square base. Each side of the stairs and the top of the gates are adorned with carved Kala-Makara, giant face flanked by reliefs of beautiful women. It is ornamentis design that commonly found in the tops of the doors of ancient Javanese temples. Kala-Makara shape is a figurative ornament of the manifestation of spirutual exorcism power towards evil spirit and evil deeds. The outer wall of Pawon is carved with reliefs of boddhisattvas, Buddhist divinities, beings who dedicate themselves for the happiness of the creature other than himself in the universe, and Taras, the symbol of the independence of spirit for achieving sacred life; it is also a symbol of compassion and realization that everything will vanish on its given time. There are also reliefs of kalpataru the tree of life, flanked between Kinnara-Kinnari, twin bird with human head. The square chamber inside is empty with a square basin in the center of it. There are also rectangular small windows were found, probably for ventilation. The roof section of is crowned with five small stupas and four small ratnas, smaller stupa with diamond shaped crown. Because of its relative simplicity, symmetry and harmony, the historians dubbed this small temple as "the jewel of Javanese temple architecture", in contrast with tall-slender East Javanese style counterparts as founds in later Singhasari and Majapahit period.

The original name of this Buddhist shrine is uncertain. Pawon literally means "kitchen" in Javanese language, which is derived from the root word awu or dust. The derivation connection also suggests that this temple was probably built as a tomb or mortuary temple for the dust of cremated king. Local people name this temple as "Bajranalan" based on the name of the village. Bajranalan was derived from the Sanskrit word Vajra (thunder or also a name of Buddhist ceremonial tool) and Anala (fire, flame). These three temples are still functioned up to this day. Once a year, in the contemporary era during the full moon in May or June, Buddhists in Indonesia observe Vesak annual ritual by walking from Mendut passing through Pawon and the walk ends at Borobudur. Most probably, this temple served to purify the mind prior for ascending Borobudur. Pawon can be visited from 06.00 in the morning until 05.00 in the evening and suitable enjoyed after Borobudur Sunrise.
