Central to the island’s artistic and intellectual heritage, Yogyakarta is where the arts are at their brightest and its traditions at their most visible. Dating from the 8th century, in Central Java, Borobudur, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, is a Buddhist stupa and temple complex. This is one of the world’s greatest ancient monuments, the single largest Buddhist structure anywhere on earth.
