A friend of mine and I went here during the Vesak ceremony 2557 or Vesak 2013. Vesak is a Buddhist holy day celebrating three important dates: the born day, the enlightenment day, and the passing away of Siddharta Gautama (Buddha). We went straight from Tamansari complex to Mendut temple by motorcycle cab (took us IDR 50,000). Then from Mendut temple we walked to Borobudur temple like the celebrating Buddhists did (about 3 km, more or less). Although the ceremony itself was a bit chaotic and we didn’t see the flying lanterns ritual, it was still worth seeing. The costumes, the festivities, the crowd. I was humbled once again by diversity. Enjoy the photos!
