Gateway to the famous Buddhist temple and UNESCO heritage site Borobudur, Yogyakarta, or Jogja, is one of Indonesia’s 32 provinces and the hub of classical Javanese fine art and culture, renowned for its puppetry, batik and poetry. A city steeped in tradition and history, it was the seat of the ancient Mataram empire in the 18th and 19th centuries. Blessed with natural wonders and rich Javanese heritage, Jogja is also referred to as “Never Ending Asia” for its multitude of attractions. Little wonder that it is the second most visited Indonesian destination after Bali.
