In Yogya, visitors can witness a range of cultural attractions, while enjoying the international standard comfort of the city’s hotels and the eclectic range of its restaurants. The areas surrounding the city are equally fascinating, especially the restored 9th century temple of Borobudur, one of the most important and awe-inspiring Buddhist temples in the world, and the 8th-10th century Hindu temples of Prambanan, where on nights leading up to the full moon, dance performances of the classic Hindu epic of the Ramayana are held. South of Yogya, the beach of Parangtritis, with its soft sand and pounding surf, attracts travelers searching for tropical tranquility.
Yogyakarta, one of the three Special Districts of Indonesia, is considered to be the foremost center of Javanese Culture. Located at the foot of the active volcano Mt. Merapi, the fertile plain of Yogyakarta was established in the 16th and 17"centuries. The Seat of the Mighty Javanese Empire of Mataram Yogyakarta has a special, gentle charm which seldom fails to captivate visitors.
