Yogyakarta is the second most visited tourist destination in Indonesia, after Bali. It’s widely seen as Java’s cultural capital. Indeed, Yogyakarta has a long history, particularly when one includes the medieval civilizations of Borobodur and Prambanan and the empire of Mataram. Generally spoken, Yogyakarta is nicer than the verymost other Javanese cities and towns because it still has what of it’s past preserved, mostly from the Dutch times and from the Javanese court of the local sultan, namely the kraton (sultan’s palace). More than the crowded consumer paradies of Yogyakarta itself are the surroundings worth to spend some time – that is above all Prambanan, Parangtritis, Imogiri and Kaliurang, a mountain village close to the famous Javanese volcano Mount Merapi.

Prambanan is a medieval temple city in central Java. Prambanan temple compound consists of three main monuments with another three complementary temples and hundreds of more temple buildings around. The whole compound was build in the decades from 850 CE on. Prambanan is not only impressive because of the sheer size of the monuments but, above all, due to the highest quality of crafts and arts. The monuments of Prambanan are seen as a response to the closeby Borobodur monument and certainly many of the same artisans were involved in the construction of both sides.
