The company managing one of the most famous temples in Yogyakarta, Taman WIsata Candi Borobudur, Prambanan, and Ratu Boko, hopes their plan will be approved in anticipation of the upcoming Christmas and New Year 2021 holidays.
“Thus far, we have only done trials for the New Normal Adaptation Phase 3 for up to 5,000 visitors per day,” said Edy Setijono, CEO of Taman WIsata Candi Borobudur, Prambanan, and Ratu Boko.
“For Phase 4 which is during the festive and new year holidays, we are aiming to increase the quota to up 5,000 visitors per day.”
Based on Edy’s assessment, the gradual increase in the number of daily visitors adhering to Covid-19 health protocols during their visit to Prambanan Temple has gone smoothly in the new normal era.
This Yogyakarta temple first only allowed up to 1,500 visitors to enter, but continually boosted the daily visitors permitted to 2,500 and up to the current quota of 5,000 visitors.
“The result of the evaluation for Phase 1 to Phase 3 indicates that everything happened without a glitch. As such, we are looking forward to seeing the result of Phase 4 when the number will increase to 7,000 daily visitors.”
Edy said that his company is coordinating and consulting with the Yogyakarta Covid-19 Mitigation Agency regarding its Phase 4 plans.
