With a thriving population of about half a million residents, Yogyakarta is at once one of the largest cities in Java, and also the most popular tourist destination. If you are looking to check out some Javanese art, you have now come to the right place. Whether its traditional architecture and painting, or dance and shadow-puppet performances, this city is the leading cultural haven for a variety of traditional means of expression. Though there is truly an overabundance of beautiful ornate temples, a few most noteworthy specific ones to check out are Borobudur and Prambanan Buddhist temple complexes. The truly one-of-a-kind architecture of the stupas found at these locations is some of the most unique architectural creations ever constructed, and gives off a sort of haunting mystical aura thanks to their stunning appearance. The list of attractions goes on and here, with several UNESCO World Heritage Site and plenty of stunning natural attractions to go along with the man made ones. For a unique look at a culture that seems alien under the gaze of western-centric perspectives, Yogyakarta is a veritable showcase of mysterious beauty.

Yogyakarta Palace
75 Reviews
M38***13The Royal Palace of Yogyakarta is the most important part of the history of Yogyakarta. There is a lot of history to explore in the Royal Palace of Yogyakarta. Part of the palace complex is an open museum, collecting various collections belonging to the sultanate, including various gifts from European kings, palace replicas and gamelan heritage, various patterns of batik, sultan and Abdidalai Photos of various events in Mnia.
Sonobudoyo Museum
29 Reviews
M38***13After seeing the disappointing Jakarta's many museums and the over-commercial attractions such as the Royal Palace of Yogyakarta and the Water City, I had already lost confidence in such a museum. However, after visiting, I feel that it is the most conscientious among the many attractions in Yogyakarta. The collection is still very rich, with various exhibits about Javanese culture. However, like many cultural museums in Jakarta, most of them only have Indonesian annotations, and there are not many annotations. There are not many things that can be learned after visiting. But it is good to walk around in the air-conditioned museum on a hot day.

Temples and monuments to grand empires feature prominently in our list, poignant reminders that no matter how much we think the world around us fixed and constant, time erases all in the end.
