General Information

    Yogya, as it is commonly called, is the fascinating center of refined Javanese court culture and the heir to two of Asia's grandest ancient religious monuments: the Buddhist cosmological model, Borobudur, an exquisitely carved pyramid representing man's ascent to nirvana; and the Hindu temple of Prambanan, whose dozens of Angkor-like stone towers rise towards the sky as if from a dream. At the center of the city is the Sultan's Palace, the elegant seat of power and courtly drama for centuries. Javanese craftsmen still practice the arts of batik, shadow puppetry, and silversmithing in the surrounding neighborhoods. You will also want to explore the nightlife of Jalan Malioboro, with its variety of restaurants, inexpensive shops, and crowds of friendly students from Yogya's many universities and school of performing arts.

    In mid-2012, one Indonesian ISP began blocking websites with gay content. If you want to access your favorite websites on holiday, avoid using SIM cards from Tel Komsel or staying at hotels that use Telkom as their service provider.

    The population of Yogya is about a half million people (that's about 20,000 Utopians).
