Kota Gede, Yogyakarta
(2.6/5 based on 240+ reviews on the web)
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. Before you head to Yogyakarta, plan trip itinerary details with our user-friendly Yogyakarta vacation planner, to make sure you see all that Yogyakarta has to offer, including Kota Gede.
