Description

Discover the cultural highlights of Yogyakarta in this all-encompassing private tour of temples and villages. Visit the Sultan’s Palace for a live performance, stop at the sacred Taman Sari water castle, and witness the splendor of UNESCO-heritage Prambanan Temples.

Head first to the building known as Kraton, the Sultan’s Palace. Still used as a residence, this is also a museum showcasing not only fine architecture but also relics and artifacts of Javanese culture. Watch a live performance of traditional entertainment like a Golek Menak puppet show or Macapat (poetry reading).

Continue on foot to the neighboring Taman Sari Water Castle and its gardens. After exploring the baths and pools of the complex, leave the city behind and travel to the grandeur Sonobudoyo Museum. Designed by a Dutch architect, marvel at the museum's collections of traditional wooden puppets, masks, and textiles, plus extensive arrays of keris(dagger).

Next, stop for a lunch of local dishes while you are entertained with a demonstration of Javanese puppetry. Then, head to Prambanan Temple, a UNESCO-listed site. As you reach the holy site of Prambanan, hear about the symbolism of this towering structure—the largest Hindu temple in Indonesia—and see shrines dedicated to the Hindu holy trinity of Brahma, Vishnu, and Shiva. Visit the nearby Sewu and Plaosan temples before your driver takes you back to your city hotel.
