Manohara is the Kinnari (half woman, half bird) heroine of the Jataka Tale story of Prince Sudhana and Manohara. The legend appears in the Divyavadana and is documented by stone reliefs at Borobodur.
Manohara Hotel Borobudur is the only hotel located nearby the 9th-century Buddhist sanctuary of Borobudur, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. This sanctuary hotel is located within a natural amphitheatre, with the limestone Menoreh Hills rising gently behind, the Kedu Plain in front and four volcanoes (Sumbing and Sundoro to the West, Merbabu and Merapi to the East) on the horizon.
Manohara provides the opportunity for immersion in Javanese culture, offering trips to ceremonies, temples and antique shops. Private dawn and sunset visits to Borobudur and other archeological monuments in the vicinity are a highlight of a stay at Manohara. You can start your day with a pre-dawn stroll through the dewy grass of a lush tropical garden and solemnly ascend to the top of the Borobudur temple to enjoy an unforgettable sunrise with a breathtaking scenic view.
Both a shrine to Lord Buddha and a place for Buddhist pilgrimage, Borobudur comprises six square platforms topped by three circular platforms, and is decorated with 2,672 relief panels and 504 life-size Buddha statues, each sculpted from a single stone. The monument occupies a modest plateau and from the top gallery, beautiful views of Central Java are revealed.
