Yogyakarta: The Heart of Java
Yogyakarta, also called Jogjakarta or Jogja, is the heart of Javanese culture and heritage in Indonesia. It was once the capital of the Javanese Mataram Kingdom, and much still remains of the spirit of the old city. Several temples of the older civilizations actually still stand to this day, and serve not just as wonders to be explored, but also as reminders of the rich history, religion and culture of the area. In Yogyakarta, you find a blend of old and traditional, and modern trying to come together without losing the spirit of the Javanese. 

There are several places to see cultural performances such as traditional Javanese dance, or Javanese puppet shows. These are often an opportunity to learn more about the history and spiritual beliefs of the people.
If you ever end up in Yogyakarta or decide to go there, then make sure you absolutely do not miss out on some of these amazing cultural attractions:

Prambanan Temple
This Hindu temple was built in the 10th century and said to be the most beautiful Hindu temple in the world as it main temple towers 47 meters tall in the center of two slightly smaller main temples. The architecture is incredibly intricate and complex, and really evidences many of the beliefs of the Hindus.

Borobudur Temple
Unlike the Prambanan Temple, this 9th century temple is Buddhist and listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. It is the world’s Buddhist temple in the world. There are many magnificently intricately designed carvings and sculptures, to tell stories and beliefs of the people. Borobudur is Indonesia’s most visited tourist attraction.

Ramayana Ballet
Although it is called a “ballet,” it is far from being a ballet in the way we know it today. The Ramayana Ballet is a performance that conveys the story of the Ramayana, which is a traditional epic in Hinduism and is actually engraved in the Prambanan Temple. The spectacular performance features several types of Javanese arts, including dance, music and drama.
After visiting these places, you could try other temples and cultural events, or simply even wander the streets to find some delicious authentic Javanese cuisine.

    Majestic Borobudur is a must visit! I love it. Wished could have stayed longer and learn more in detail about the extensive murals. The sunrise was breathtaking. Simply unique. I wasn't too keen on the parangtritis beach though. A beach where you can ride horses and the ATV ride just not for me. 

  2. Yamazaki

    Good tour. Sunrise at Borobudur was perfect. Guide brought us to a quiet corner instead of being together with other tour groups. Parangtritis beach has it's black sand, plenty of ATV and Horse Cart operators there for you to use, however not recommended as ATV was old and I am against animal exploitation. Will come back Yogyakarta soon, there is still the Prambanan Temple and many more to discover.

    Everything was good for me; service, tour, meals, hotel, etc. Except for the beach, I'd recommend to request to lokopoko to replace it with something else like more city tour or something. Overall good!
