Kota Gede

Get your bling on Java-style

What we say: 4 stars

Known for its thriving silver trade, Kota Gede is also a nice place to visit just to absorb the village ambiance.

It is also historically significant as the site of the capital of the ancient Mataram Islam kingdom.

Traditional Javanese architecture abounds, and it's also possible to see how batik and silverware are produced using methods passed down through generations in small stores and workshops, often built in the front part of people's homes.

Around 10 kilometres south of the city centre, Kota Gede is filled with galleries and is easily accessible using horse-drawn cart or taxi. It's also connected to the TransYogya bus network.
