Yogyakarta city info
Yogyakarta (also: Jogjakarta, Jogja, Yogya) is the capital city of the province of Yogyakarta Special Region which is in the southern part of the Central Java province, and it is a major tourist destination in Indonesia. It is renowned as a center of classical Javanese fine art and culture such as batik, ballet, drama, music, poetry, and puppet shows. It is also famous as a center for Indonesian higher education. Yogyakarta was the Indonesian capital during the Indonesian National Revolution from 1945 to 1949. Yogya is now the site of an uneasy truce between the old ways of life and the onslaught of modernity. Yogyakarta is the only province in Indonesia that is still governed by that area's pre-colonial monarchy; the Sultan of Yogyakarta serves as the hereditary governor of the province. Contemporary Yogya is nevertheles as much as a citty of cybercafes, lounge bars and traffic jams as batik, gamelan and ritual.
Yogya's potency has long outweighed its size. Today's Yogyakarta is a bustling town of some 500,000 people (the population of the whole province is estimated at 3 million), and the most popular tourist destination on Java, and the Indonesia's second most important tourist destination after Bali. it remains Java's premier tourist city with countless hotels, restaurants and attractions of its own. The city is also an ideal base for exploring nerby attractions, including Indonesia's most important archaeological site, Borobudur and Prambanan. While the city sprawls in all directions from the kraton, the core of the modern city is to the north, centering around the site of a few buildings with distinctive Dutch colonial-era architecture and the contemporary commercial district. Jalan Malioboro, with rows of sidewalk vendors and nearby market and malls, is the primary shopping street for tourists in the city, while Jalan Solo, further north, is a shopping district more frequented by locals.
The Yogyakarta province was struck by a 6.3-magnitude earthquake on 27 May 2006. It killed 5,782 people and injured approximately 36,000. Around 600,000 people were left homeless. Although Yogyakarta city was less than 25 km from the epicenter few areas of the city suffered significant visual damage, with most damage confined to the south and east of the city centre in areas such as the famous silver smithing area of Kota Gede and the artsy areas to the south of Jl Prawirotaman.
