Yogyakarta is nestled in the heart of Central Java and is steeped in rich Javanese culture and tradition. Situated on a fertile plain at the foot of the still active Mount Merapi volcano, Yogjakarta is the cultural and spiritual capital of Java. To the Javanese, Yogjakarta has always been a symbol of nationalist passion and resistance to colonial rule and has been the setting for the backlash against Dutch colonialism and the battle for Indonesian independence.


Not far from Jogjakarta is the Borobodur monument, one of the world’s greatest Buddhist relics, a colossal cosmic mountain and one of the world’s most imposing structures. Also close to Jogjakarta is the equally imposing Prambanan temple complex containing the remains of 244 temples, three main temples dominate, representing the three highest gods of Hinduism – Brahma, Vishnu and Shiva.
