Price: US$49/person (min 2 persons)

Historically, Kotagede was known as the site where the founder of the new Mataram Kingdom, Panembahan Senopati established his palace in 1575. Kotagede used to be the capital of Islamic Mataram Empire. This kingdom claims that they were the direct inheritance with the ancient Mataram rulers who build the almighty Borobudur and Prambanan Temples. Before Panembahan Senopati built an empire and Kotage becoming the capital city, this site was a jungle namely Mentaok. Then this city grew and established until becoming the capital city. In fact, there were more than 170 houses built in 1700s era around Kotagede. The name Kotagede comes from Kota means city and Gede means Great, so Kotagede is a great city.
