YOGYAKARTA (often also called Jogja, Yogya or Jogja) is located in
middle of Java Island – Indonesia, you are able to stay over, eat famous authentic delicious food, explore the pure beaches and a thousand
years old ancient temples.
A thousand years ago, Yogyakarta was the center   of
ancient Mataram Kingdom which was prosperous and high civilized. This
kingdom built Borobudur Temple which was the biggest Buddhist temple in  the world, 300 years before Angkor Wat in Cambodia. Some other relics  are Prambanan Temple, Ratu Boko Palace, and dozens of other temples
scattered throughout Yogyakarta.

However, by some mysterious reason, Ancient   Mataram
Kingdom moved its central government to East Java in the 10th   century.
The magnificent temples were abandoned and partially buried by   the
eruption material of Merapi Volcano. Slowly, Yogyakarta region went
back into the dense forest.Six hundred years later, Panembahan Senopati
established the Islamic Mataram Kingdom in the region.
Once again, Yogyakarta became the witness of   human
history of a great Kingdom that ruled Java Island and its   surrounding
area. Islamic Mataram Kingdom was leaving a trail of ruins   of fortress and royal tombs in Kotagede which recently is known as   silver
handicraft center in Yogyakarta. What is now Yogyakarta was the
witness to the rise and fall of once glorious kingdoms in Java.
Not surprisingly easy to find the ruins of old   buildings
here. Heritage temples of Old Mataram Kingdom (8th – 10th   century) can be found in Archaeological Sights directory. The ruins and   relics of
the Islamic Mataram Kingdom (16th – 17th century) is in   Kotagede.
While the Kingdom of Yogyakarta, which lasted until the   mid-20th
century, left the kraton / palace which is still functioning   today.

We have been driven around Java - Bali by Parlan during two weeks, and we enjoyed a lot his skills and dedication: The car was comfortable and clean, Parlan was always in time, happy and helping. On multiple occasions he also arranged for hostels and restaurants, and we were pleased with his selection. Last but not least, he climbed him minivan up the Kawah Ijen, on road in so bad condition that even 4x4 drivers were hesitating. He had taken advice from local acquaintances first, so he knew the best road at this particular time of the year, and we arrived safe at the volcano, Merci beaucoup

Lors de notre séjour en Indonésie, Parlan nous a permis d’aller de Yogjà Denpasar , en passant par le mont Bromo, dans d’excellentes conditions , sur 3 jours . Nous avons trouvé un véhicule confortable et très propre, un chauffeur attentif au bien_être de ses passagers. Mais surtout, guide compétent et très disponible, parlant français. Parlan nous a fait découvrir des sites superbes, et évité tout soucis , comme de très bons hôtels , des guides locaux , etc. Ceci pour un tarif très intéressant, sous les prix du marché. De plus , nous avons trouvé un ami que nous recommandons et que nous retrouverons avec joie. Martine Jammes et Alain Jammes, Tarbes France
