Borobudur Temple has a long history since being built around the seventh to eighth centuries by the Syailendra Dynasty. After being buried for centuries, it was discovered and reconstructed and is now a world-famous tourist destination. Nowadays, not only the temple, but its surrounding villages as well, offer new alternative tourism activities. Several rural tourism movements have flourished in the area. This sub-chapter aims to explain the rural tourism activities conducted by local communities in the Borobudur area and to analyze how such activities contribute to the cultural landscape conservation. As we know, Borobudur Temple and its surrounding cultural landscape are an inseparable unity. Conservation should be applied to both the temple and its setting. This sub-chapter consists of six parts. Part one is an introduction to explain the structure of community and entities in Borobudur Sub-district. Part two describes the research methodology of this study. Part three discusses the traditional village community and selfinitiated development, with a focus on Candirejo. Part four discusses citizens’ organization at the sub-district level. Part five seeks to understand the relationship between cultural landscape conservation efforts and the rural tourism initiatives conducted by the community. It starts with the identification of the progress of rural tourism in Borobudur Sub-district, then searches the impacts of tourism activities on cultural landscape. As a synthesis, the author tries to develop a scheme of cultural landscape conservation through rural tourism activities. The last part of this sub-chapter is a concluding remark showing how rural tourism initiative can contribute to cultural landscape conservation.
