My visit to Yogyakarta , Indonesia !!

I have found this older post with missing info and old links so is updated now and while doing it bringing many many memories of my visit to Yogyakarta. I have, also, told you that I have been 8 times to Indonesia over the last few years, and most of these trips were to the more popular cities but once I went to some off the beaten paths areas such as here in exotic Yogyakarta !!  Hope you enjoy the post as I

Briefly, Yogyakarta is the capital of the special territory of the same name, in the center of the island of Java, Indonesia.  Its name, which means “the work of Ayodhya”, comes from that of a city in the kingdom of Koshala of which Rāma was the monarch in the epic of Ramayana. The Special Region of Yogyakarta, one of Indonesia’s autonomous regions, owes its special status to the Sultanate of gyaHamengkubuwono, which has ruled the region since 1749 and led it through the difficult times of the occupation and the struggle for independence

The city is known as the center of classical Javanese art and traditional culture including wayang kulit shadow theater, batik, ballet, theater, music, poetry. Yogyakarta is also known for its silver craftsmen, gathered in the money district, Kota Gede. The German painter and musician Walter Spies , who was one of the first Western artists to make Bali known to the world, was conductor of the European music troupe of the Sultan of Yogyakarta.

Some things to see here with more time are: The Beringharjo market is a huge covered market ,where you can find everything: a huge choice of batik (clothes and printed fabrics), spices, fruits and vegetables, wicker baskets, trinkets… It is open in the morning only from 8h. The Sultan’s Palace! Yes a sultant still resides in Yogyakarta. He is the governor of Central Java and has a large palace in the city center, which is open for tours every morning. The Taman Sari ,formerly, the Water castle of Yogyakarta was the place where the Sultan and his Court came to bathe. The famous temples of  Borobudur  and  Prambanan  are located near Yogyakarta.

Oh yes I came here by air, see my post on airports of Indonesia. On the older Yogyakarta Adisutjipto International Airport is The new airport Yogyakarta International Airport or Kulon Progo International Airport, is in the district of Temon, kabupaten of Kulon Progo, which serves the special territory of Yogyakarta in Java, The airport was inaugurated on May 6, 2019. This one I have not try yet as my last visit dates from 2018.
