Java Overland : Yogyakarta – Bromo- Ijen- Bali

Duration: 7 Days


Javanese origin artforms are among the best known in Indonesia and the whole archipelago. The famous Javanese wayang puppetry culture was influenced by Hindu and Buddhist traditions. The Wayang repertoire stories, lakon, are mostly based on epics from India; Ramayana and Mahabharata. For centuries, the history of Java is that of kingdoms that fight for the control of a larger territory. Both Buddhism (under different forms) and Hinduism (from various traditions) prevailed among the rulers that build temples. Chinese sources and very scarce stone inscription evokes an Hindu kingdom on the north coast of Java (near modern Jepara) around the 6th or 7th century. More solid evidence teach us that a Saivite king called Sanjaya established himself in the valley of the Merbabu and Merapi volcano (north of modern Yogyakarta) in the first half of the 8th century.
