    Jogjakarta, Indonesia

The city of Yogyakarta (well known as, and simply called Jogja) is the capital of Yogyakarta Special Region. Located on the heartland of island of Java, Yogyakarta is the only province in Indonesia that is governed by a monarch.

The king is known as the Sultan (current reign of Hamengku Buwono X) serves as the appointed governor of the province while the other political offices on the city levels and below are contested through a fair and competitive elections.

The first thing that caught my eye in Yogyakarta–one of Java, Indonesia’s largest cities, known locally as Jogja–was its brilliantly eclectic nature; the people, architecture, food, and culture are fascinatingly varied. This seemingly endless diversity is a modern reflection of Indonesia’s deeply layered history and makes for a thrilling place to explore for the unexpected.

The ancient architecture that surrounds Jogja defies expectation, with structures dating back over a millennium to ancient kingdoms where Hindus and Buddhists peacefully coexisted and erected massive monuments to their prospective deities. Borobudur and Prambanan temple is just a part of several kind temples in Jogja and arround, a massive multi-tiered ancient monument, at sunrise, admiring the incredible labor and craftsmanship that was clearly poured into it.

As a significant added value, people in Jogja are inarguably friendly. Their warm welcome is another trademark of the city. Jogja is truly your home away from home.
