Jogja, Never Ending Asia

Yogyakarta (some people call it Jogjakarta, Yogya, Jogja, or Jogya) is a city with outstanding history and cultural heritage. Yogyakarta was the central of the Mataram palace (1575-1640), and till now the kraton (the sultan's palace) exists in its real functions. Besides, Yogyakarta has numerous thousand-year-old temples as inheritances of the great ancient kingdoms, such as the Borobudur temple established in the ninth century by the dynasty of Syailendra.

More than the cultural heritages, Yogyakarta has beautiful natural panorama. The green rice fields cover the suburb areas with a background of the Merapi Mountain. The natural beaches will be easily found in the southern of Yogyakarta.

Here the society lives in peace and have typical hospitality. Just try to go around the city by bike, pedicab, or horse cart; so you may find sincere smiles and warm greeting in every city corners.

The artistic atmosphere is deeply felt in Yogyakarta. Malioboro, as the center of Yogyakarta, is overwhelmed by handicraft from all around the city. Street musicians always readily entertain the visitors of the lesehan food stalls.
