Borobudur Temple has the potential to be a world pilgrimage tourism destination

Borobudur has great potential to be named a world pilgrimage tourism destination as it is the largest Buddhist temple in the world with extraordinary historical and spiritual value. Universal values of virtue and philosophy of life are engraved in the reliefs and architecture of the temple.

Borobudur is not only relevant for Buddhists but also for all travelers seeking a spiritual as well as cultural experience. This Famtrip activity is expected to build sustainable cooperation with inbound tour operators in developing international pilgrimage tour packages, increasing spiritual and cultural tourism visits, and encouraging the acceleration of the growth of the tourism ecosystem in the super-priority tourism destinations.

Hetty also said the Famtrip is a concrete manifestation of the growth of spiritual tourism in the Borobudur Temple area, following a number of spiritual events including the Full Moon Vesak Festival. Religious activities at TWC destinations are also part of the quality and sustainable tourism program because they bring a positive economic impact on the community and the surrounding environment.
