Central Java is a hotbed of cultural richness, that dated back even during the 7th century when it became the home of many of Indonesia’s celebrated historical Kingdoms such as Kalingga Buddhist Kingdom, Hindu Kingdom, Mataram Buddhist Kingdom (responsible for the extremely iconic Borobudur Temple), Majapahit (the origin of the very famous character Gajah Mada, sculptured below on a statue in Monas, Jakarta), Demak, and more.

Nowadays, Central Java is the mainstay location of the Javanese culture, and mostly populated by Javanese people—a group of people famous for their patience, kindness, and willingness to co-exist with and help others. They are also known for their very close affinity to the world of art, and indeed, Yogyakarta—one of Central Java’s most prominent cities, is home to some of the many famous Indonesian artists, and it even has a moniker that describes such close relationship: The City of Artists (in fact, Yogyakarta has just recently hosted the annual Biennale Yogya 2014 event.)

Indonesia owes the Javanese culture some of its most iconic cultural representations: Wayang Kulit is one example, although none can serve as a better example than Batik, which is well known even internationally through-out the world.

The colorful nature of Javanese culture is also expressed within their language: Javanese language or “Bahasa Jawa” as it is known by the natives. This language employs certain rules void from most other local languages in Indonesia, and one of the most unique amongst those rules is the necessity of choosing from several different levels of politeness—a “speech level”, if you will, ranging from saiki—the lowest, used in friendly manner with friends, etc; saniki—the middle ground, and samenika—the most elegant, used in formal situations and/or with someone you need to pay respect to. So if you want to fully understand Javanese language/culture, the ability to quickly differentiate the formality of the social environment you are in is something that is very crucial to master.

Speaking of which, Central Java is the largest producer of rice—the ultimate staple of Indonesian cuisine everywhere—and as such it is also the home to some of Indonesia’s most favorite dishes in the menu. In fact, it can be said that Javanese-style dish is truly really the finest example of authentic Indonesian cuisine, because it bears little influence from Arabic, Indian, or Chinese food, the three main influence of Indonesian food. Examples of famous Javanese food are numerous—to name a few, we have Gudeg, Lumpia, Soto Lamongan, Rawon, Pecel and many more.

Okay, this is the end of our 1st part of series of posts focusing on the Wonders of Java theme, which discusses Javanese and all of its magically enchanting quirks and cultures. Look forward to the part two of this series in this blog!

What is so unique about a mountain? Well, first of all, it is uniquely shaped like a boat that is turned upside down, just like the legendary mountain of Tangkuban Perahu, but that is not all! The most interesting part about this mountain is, it is the home of fossilized stones and animal remnant that dated hundreds of thousands and even millions of years ago; that’s just not something you just see every day!

Rowo Jombor in Klaten
