Morning dedicated to a guided tour of Prambanan monuments; a vast complex of small temples set around a central group of eight bigger temples, dominated by Shiva temples.

Transfer out of the city, near Borobudur Temple.
Accommodation in the hotel, dinner and overnight.
Wake up before dawn and set off to admire the sun rise of Borobudur temple: recognized all over the world as the monumental and greater expression of Buddhist Javanese architecture, built between 750 and 850 in volcanic stone, using the upper part of a hill as a base, enriched with countless sculptures and panels of basreliefs, it can be interpreted as an immense mandala or cosmogram neatly arranged arround the great Buddha stupa.
