After 6am, the official opening time of the temple, streams of tourists started climbing up to the temple. The crowds were still managable and I could still have some space on my own to discover the temple.
In a more godly 7am, a sudden wave of local indonesian tourists flooded in. It was quite heartening to see local tourists visiting their national sites. These indonesians are quite lucky to have such beautiful historical sites to call their own.
Coming from Singapore where either most of our historical sites have been destroyed by progress or ruined by urban planning, I felt a little envious that they preserved their cultural sites that encouraged local tourism.
