Years ago, I read the Persian poet Jalal ad-Din Muhammad Rumi quotation, travel brings power and love back into your life. It is currently a very popular quotation almost all over the world in which I recalled my love to the landmark of Central Java tourism, Borobudur temple.
I am not sure if it is the temple or the sunrise got myself drowned to one of the best sunrise scenery in the country. Maybe it is a combination of the temple and my love to do sunrise hunting, another interest that I might leave if I didn’t see the one from Borobudur Temple.
Choose the spot for sunrise hunting
As the biggest Buddhist temple in the world, Borobudur has its own charm to attract the tourist to visit it during the day. It appeals its endless allure during the sunrise time, which I saw it from my last visit there.
There are two options you can enjoy the sunrise and the temple: directly from inside the temple or enjoying the sunrise and the temple from afar.
If you want to see it from inside the temple, the track from Manohara Hotel in Magelang is the best way. It costs Rp. 270,000 for domestic visitor and Rp. 400,000 for foreign visitors. You can say it is a way to enjoy the temple privately before the public gate opens at 6.30 a.m.
I was enjoy both way in in the same day by entering from Manohara Hotel then move to the Punthuk Setumbu hill area before the sun got too high.
Breaking the dawn
I have to admit I can’t remember when my last visit to Borobudur was. It was my first visit there knowing the history of the temple and the following story attached.
It was 3 a.m. when I began the sunrise trip to Borobudur from downtown Yogyakarta. As the temple situated in Magelang, Central Java, the trip took 45 minutes of driving. The entrance gate to the temple opens at 4.30. Once you entered the entrance gate, you can walk in to the temple and choose your spot to see or capturing the sunrise moment with your camera.
I was following my compass to see which side is the eastern side and I saw so many people have gathered around there. I set up my tripod between the darkness.
As I remember, I can feel the breeze between the darkness and the dawn. The sunrise began at 05.45 a.m. The darkness transformed into bluish sky and not long took the orange glow to the horizon.
I stood between the stupas with the Buddha statues insides. This sunrise scene mesmerized me more as I saw the two greatest mountains of Yogyakarta and Central Java, The Mount Merapi and Merbabu on the eastward line.
I am getting closer to see more about the three superimposing spheres that reflected from the base, the body and the superstructure of the temple. They are – from the lowest to the highest level of the temple- Kamadhatu, Rupadhatu and Arupadhatu, representing respectively the sphere of desires where we are bound to our desires, the sphere of forms where we abandon our desires but are still bound to name and form, and the sphere of formlessness where there is no longer either name or form.
The silhouettes of Buddha statues and the stupas are the most favorite object people take for the photograph. I walked around the the Aruphadatu area, the area of the stupas and the Buddha statues inside each of them.
From the southern to the western side of the temple, I can see the trees in covered by the mists. Moreover, the mist gave the mystical effect to the photograph. They are other views I mesmerized me asides with the golden sunrise and the mountains.
Seeing the rest of the sunrise and the temple from afar
I decided to not stay longer around the temple as the public gate opened. I was thinking to try my luck to see Borobudur from afar.
Punthuk Setumbu hill point of view was my first option for it until someone told me to visit the Dove church or the locals called Gereja Ayam near Punthuk Setumbu hill.
Gereja Ayam was an abandoned building planned to build as a church by its owner. The construction is being proceed again after this building revealed and getting popular.
I climbed up the stairs inside the church to the head of the dove part. I did not predict the view I saw from above.
People said the best spot to see Borobudur from afar is from Punthuk Setumbu view point, but I think the spot at the dove head of Gereja Ayam is better as it is closer to the temple.
The sunrise afterwards view gave more yellow to the horizon. I still can enjoy it as I saw the pyramidal-shaped of Borobudur flanked by the woods appeared from this side. It is crowned by bell-shaped dome on the top of the temple. I pointed my camera lens to the temple, capturing another best view from that morning.
I can hear the bird chirping around. I feel peace asides with the joy I shared with some friends with whom I found this unexpected view through the head of the dove.
When the sun got higher I remember another quotation I read from Rumi, “Let yourself be drawn by the stronger pull of that which you truly love,”. At that moment, I am sure it was the love of watching sunrise during my visit to the places I travel to and sharing the photographs to the one I love. (EDNA TARIGAN)
