Main port photo for Semarang, Indonesia

Across the Kedu Plain from the port of Semarang on Java stands one of the great manmade wonders of the world: the temple at Borobudur. The largest Buddhist temple in the world, Borobudur lay covered in volcanic ash for nearly a millennium until it was rediscovered in 1814. For nearly a century afterward, treasure hunters and souvenir seekers pillaged the ruins. In 1973, UNESCO supervised a 10-year restoration of this, one of the most awe-inspiring sights on the planet.

When the King of Siam visited Borobudur in 1896, he was presented with eight cartloads of relics taken from the temple complex, including 30 relief panels and five statues of the Buddha.

Note - Due to large tidal changes that take place in Semarang, there will be times during the day when a portion of the dock is submerged. An elevated platform will be in place from the ship gangway to the bus parking area.
