Welcome to Yogjakarta Indonesia!
In this tour we visit central Java in the city of Yogyakarta (often called “Jogja”) to see Borobudur and Prambanan, two UNESCO World Heritage Sites.
About 15 minutes from Yogjakarta’s airport is Prambanan, the largest Hindu temple in Indonesia dating back to the 10th Century. It contains temples dedicated to the three main Gods of the Hindu Trinity – Brahma, Vishnu and Shiva.
Next we head to the Sultan’s Palace where we see a glimpse into the Indonesian heritage.
We watch the Wayang, or Shadow Puppet performance, which is an Javanese art form listed with UNESCO. The puppets are etched in intricate designs and the stories are accompanied by the traditional gamelan music.
We visit a batik art shop to watch how this unique Javanese art form is created using wax and color on cloth and silk.
Next we try the local cuisine including snake fruit.
Finally, we reach Borobudur, one of the top three temples in Southeast Asia. Built in the 9th Century, it was built as a monument to educate about Buddhism. It is the largest Buddhist temple complete with nine levels topped by a central dome, making it 10, a number signifying perfection. There are 504 Buddha statues, each in different positions ranging from meditation, teaching, to enlightenment.
