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.
