Reasons To Have The Java Island On Your Travel List


The Java Islands have been ignored by the tourists for a while now. The reason is that tourists visit Bali instead of making a trip here. The rich history of Java island includes volcanos, beautiful Hindu-Buddhist temples, and scenic coasts.

The waterfalls and caves in Java will take your breath away. The volcanos are still active on the island, and it is home to some of the beautiful UNESCO World Heritage Sites. These places are the sole reasons to add Java in your list of places to visit.


If you love Hindu temples of India, take a look at the Prambanan temple of Java. This state of the art temple is a 9th Century creation dedicated to the three prime Gods of Hinduism; Bramha, Vishnu, and Mahesh (Shiva). Together they are called the ‘Trimurti.” Prambanan is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The entire compound has more than three hundred temples.

Borobudur Temple

Twin mountains surround the world’s largest Buddhist temple. There are about 500 Buddha statues in the temple complex, and the temple is set over nine platforms. Like the Prambanan, it is a 9th-century build. The temple was abandoned in the 14th century; it was made famous again in the 18th century by the British rule of the Javanese Island. The temple has survived the test of time, and once you visit the place, you will know the true value of this destination.

Mount Bromo

The name of Mount Bromo is derived from the Hindu God Bramha, he is called as Bromo in Javanese. Mount Bromo is an active volcano, and its height is 7,641 ft. The climb to the volcano is easy, and it erupted last time in 2015. As you can see, the mountain is what paradise would like in the eyes of a romantic. What more of a reason do we need to see Java?
