Things to know about Yogyakarta (Indonesia)
Yogyakarta is also known as Jogja and it is the only place in Indonesia that is still ruled by a Sultanate. The name of the city is in fact derived from the Ramayana and it means ‘a city to prosper’. Yogyakarta was formerly a part of the Buddhist Ailendras Kingdom in the seventh century, but by the thirteenth century, it was ruled by the Hindu Majapahit Empire. Yogyakarta gained even another cultural layer with the establishment of the Islamic Mata-ram Kingdom. Post colonialism, once Indonesia gained independence, Yogyakarta was given a special status. Experience all these incredible layers of history yourself by booking one of our Yogyakarta Tour Packages before your holiday!
