It will be for promoting peace and bringing harmony across the world. A cultural introduction programme was held yesterday by Tidar Heritage Foundation (THF) in Magelang city, near Borobudur temple. It was attended by representatives of embassies, among others from China, Lebanon, Oman, the Philippines, Australia, Germany, Hungary, Mongolia and Croatia.

 
Spiritual tourism is expected to promote Magelang as an Indonesian spiritual destination, making it a substitute to Rome or Jerusalem. Constructed during the ancient Javanese kingdom era in the ninth century, Borobudur temple is one of UNESCO’s World Heritage Sites, and an attraction for boosting Indonesian tourism and economy.

 
The 2500 square meter temple is an attraction for foreign tourists who are eager to take pilgrimage trips and who are curious about ancient civilization.
