Yogyakarta

Yogyakarta— despite the official spelling, the name is usually pronounced and not uncommonly written Jogjakarta or just Jogja (JOGH-jah) — is a major tourist destination in Indonesia. It is the capital city of the province of Yogyakarta Special Region which is in the southern part of the Central Java province, Indonesia.

Yogyakarta is a bustling town of some 500,000 people and the most popular tourist destination on Java, largely thanks to its proximity to the temples of Borobudur and Prambanan. The town is a center of art and education, offers some good shopping and has a wide range of tourist facilities.

Strictly speaking, the city (kota) of Yogyakarta is only one of five districts within the semi-autonomous province of Daerah Istimewa Yogyakarta (DIY), literally the “Yogyakarta Special Region”. (The other districts are Sleman on the slopes of fiery Mount Merapi to the North, Bantul all the way to the sea to the South, the hills of Gunungkidul to the East and the low lands of Kulon Progo to the West.)

Visit the ancient Hindu temple of Prambanan which is 19 km (12 mi) from Yogya. The majestic Buddhist temple Borobudur can be reached by car from Yogya within one hour.

Yogya’s palace or keraton (also known as kraton or karaton) is a splendid example of traditional Javanese architecture, there is simply no other place like it.

With a collection of precious artifacts and relics which could rival museums the world over, the Sonobudoyo Museum is a treasure trove of ancient wonders.

The Taman Sari complex is a remarkable collection of ancient ruins, which were once a grand palace built in the center of a huge, man made lake.

Visit the museum of Affandi, one of Indonesia’s famous modern painters.

From Yoga visit traditional villages like Kasongan, a village of pottery makers that produce traditional as well as modern handicrafts in pottery.

From Yogya have an adventure and can climb up the active volcano Mt. Merapi, or enjoy eco-tours visiting rural villages like Candirejo near Borobudur, or Kembang Arum in Sleman, Yogyakarta.
