Shrines and Cupboards – Cooking at Borobudur
- Full Day
The local market is just minutes away on a horse-cart. Vegetables, chilies, turmeric and other spices are the typical ingredients of Javanese cuisine. The morning market is not only the place to buy ingredients for a delicious meal but also the source for the newest chatter and gossip. Pawon temple lies impressively on the way back from the market and invites for a short stint and visit to the site.

The shady cooking venue neighboring the gardens is the perfect place to activate all the sense. Prepare three healthy and fresh traditional dishes, such as vegetable and coconut milk soup, mushroom satay and potatoes crocket, a Dutch influenced dish. Learn how to tune the food by the herbs and spices from the Indonesian archipelago. Your host will supervise the right amounts while you’re peeling, chopping, seasoning and cooking the different ingredients together.
Enjoy a delicious self-cooked lunch.

In the afternoon continue with your guide and explore further surrounding temples. You may begin with nearby Mendut Temple. Older than Borobudur this pyramid-shaped temple houses three impressively carved stone statues. Finally, Borobodur - the largest Buddhist Temple in the world – shall not be missed out. Discover the incredible history behind its construction. Comprised of thousands of volcanic and river stone blocks, the temple was assembled entirely by human labor and took more than 75 years to complete. These days, the UNESCO Heritage site is still visible in its full glory- with magnificent carvings and an unusual, yet surprisingly beautiful bulk structure.
