Project Location Borobudur-Yogyakarta-Prambanan


Key to enhancing tourism attraction, especially foreign visitors, is the development of the Yogyakarta, Borobudur, and Prambanan as a coherent cultural destination. It is envisaged to develop the destination as an internationally recognized symbol of Javanese traditional culture. The city of Yogyakarta is the main hub for tourism and transport infrastructure. Besides being a bustling town with a pleasant atmosphere and a famous shopping street (Malioboro), it is endowed with a rich living Javanese cultural heritage. 

The Kraton (palace) of Yogyakarata is a walled city within a city. It is not only the residence of the Sultan and his family, but it is also a living museum that centers on Javanese culture. At the Kraton, tourists can learn and see directly how Javanese culture continues to live and be preserved. The Water Castle (Taman Sari) is within the Kraton area and was built in the mid-18th century. It has four distinct areas: a large artificial lake with islands and pavilions located in the west, a bathing complex in the center, a complex of pavilions and pools in the south, and a smaller lake in the east. 

Within an hour driving from Yogyakarta, Borobudur and Prambanan are magnificent historical Javanese temple complexes dating back to the 8th to 9th and the 9th to 10th century respectively. They are both UNESCO World Heritage Sites and they are managed by PT. TWC. In addition, another tourism attractions that can be visited are:

1. Pawon Temple

2. Mendut Temple

3. Punthuk Setambu (Sunrise Spot)

4. Bukit Rhema (Abandoned Church)
