Joyakarta, Indonesia Photos

Joyakarta (or Jogyakarta) is a city on the south shore of the island of Java in Indonesia. Primarily Muslim, the culture contrasts markedly to the intense artistic expressions of neighboring Bali. Nonetheless, a tropical climate imparts an exotic feel to what visitors see. Jogya is the base from which tourists travel to Borobudur.
