Kota Gede, Yogyakarta

2.6
#3 of 10 in Neighborhoods in Java
Time seems to stand still at Kota Gede, a quiet neighborhood that once served as the heart of the area's thriving silver industry. Panembahan Senopati established his Mataram Kingdom here in 1575, and his tomb lies in the graveyard of the neighborhood's old mosque. If you wish to visit the tomb, remember to wear clothing appropriate for sacred sites. Elsewhere within the district you can see numerous mosaic-tiled houses once owned by Dutch and Arab merchants. Take a slow walk through the narrow streets to visit traditional shops and find bargains on handcrafted silver souvenirs. A visit to Kota Gede represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Depok road trip planning website to plot your vacation.

  • Many shops selling silver here. We stopped at HS Silver to view the artisans at work and buy a few items in silver. Good service  more »
