Butterflies brighten up Borobudur for the holidays
The Jakarta Post
Visitors of the largest Buddhist temple in the world, the Borobudur in Central Java, may be surprised to see hundreds of butterfly ornaments decorating the pathway into the temple complex this holiday season.
The butterfly decorations are made of sponges and displayed along the complex’s concourse.
A.Y. Suhartanto, service manager of the Borobudur temple park, said that all 400 butterfly decorations were installed on Dec. 16 to symbolize transformation.
“This is a transformation of the park’s services, attractions and facilities for its visitors,” Suhartanto said.
One visitor from Jember, East Java, found the decorations attractive and a vibrant addition to the temple grounds.
“This shows that the park is professionally managed as it always comes up with something new,” he said.
For the Idul Fitri holidays earlier this year, the park was adorned with colorful umbrellas.
Mamik Sasmiati, another visitor, said the butterfly ornaments provided a fetching background for Instagram selfies.
“The ornaments bring something new for the visitors, especially for children,” she added. (asw)
