Recently, the government plans to increase the tourist fare to the top of Borobudur Temple to Rp. 750 thousand. This step is allegedly due to the maintenance of the largest Buddhist site in the world owned by Indonesia. As for the limitation of the quota of 1,200 people per day who go up to the temple, it is really necessary to save the site.
Well , who among Kawanjo hasn’t had the chance to come here yet? There used to be a scene, Kawanjo. Many say that the location of the Borobudur Temple is in Yogyakarta, in fact it is in Magelang.
