Indonesia: Yogyakarta 1 - Heart of Java

Indonesia: Yogyakarta 1 - Heart of Java

Yogyakarta, which is the name of both the city and its surrounding region in central Java, is the cradle of Javanese culture in Indonesia. Host Sian Richards meets Budi, who welcomes her to his family's home, where she too will join him later in the program to prepare a traditional Indonesian dish, Pachal (Javanese salad). She explores a pottery village, called Kasongan; then meets her guide, Arinto, outside the city to tour the Borobudur Temple, a Buddhist vision of the cosmos in stone, and one of the largest Buddhist shrines in the world. It is structured in three main levels, which represent the earth, heaven and nirvana. Next she travels with Irwan to see the intricately carved Javanese Wayang shadow puppets, which date back to 8th century India and are made from Bakla leather. Then she visits the 18th-century Sultan's Palace, which is the elegant focal point of Yogyakarta's traditional culture. A jewel of classical Javanese architecture, which not only house priceless art and artifacts, but also is home to the 10th generation of Sultan, who lives in the palace and serves as the local governor. 07/09DE JSCA 30 min.
