Borobudur, one of the wonders of the world is one of the many popular tourism object  by tourists when visiting Indonesia.

Borobudur is the name of a Buddhist temple located at Borobudur, Magelang, Central Java.

Every year at the full moon in May (or June in leap years), Buddhists in Indonesia celebrate Vesak at the Borobudur Temple. 
Vesak is celebrated as the day of birth, death and the moment when Siddhartha Gautama obtain the highest wisdom to become the Buddha Shakyamuni. All three of these events is called Vesak Trisuci. Vesak ceremony centered on three Buddhist temples by walking from the Mendut Pawon and ending at Borobudur.
On the night of Vesak, particularly during peak moments of the full moon, Buddhists gathered around Borobudur. 
At that time, Borobudur is believed to be the gathering place of supernatural power. According to the trust, during Vesak, the Buddha will appear visible on top of a mountain in the south.

With all the grandeur and mystery that is, only natural that many people from all over the world enter the Borobudur as a place to visit in his life. Besides enjoying the temple, you can walk around to the villages around Borobudur, like Karanganyar and Wanurejo to see people making craft activity. You can also go to the top watu Kendil to be able to view the panorama from the top of Borobudur
