Tour Overview

Kotagede is a charming little town that was once the seat of the Mighty Mataram Empire or "the beginning of Yogyakarta." Some claim that the term 'Kotagede' is derived from the label of the largest city in the last decade and refers to 'Sargede,' the central market in the heart of the city. Traveling to Kotagede, the street is 2.5 meters wide, allowing only small cars and a large number of bicycles to pass through. Kotagede's alleyways are even narrower, measuring only 1 - 1.5 meters wide.

This journey will take you to Kotagede, the glorious origin of Mataram Kingdom. Featuring Kotagede's houses, which are like an experiment in which many different architectural styles have been established. Kotagede once had hundreds of silver shops along its streets, as the silver craft tradition, along with Islamic tradition, has existed for centuries. Many silver shops have gone bankrupt as a result of the prolonged Covid pandemic. Only a few dozens of businesses remain.
