SPIRIT OF JOGJA
Special Region of Yogyakarta is one of cities in the world that still applies royal system in its government. Some may ask how is it possible there is a region with monarchical system inside the democratic country, Indonesian government.
For your information, government of Special Region of Yogyakarta implements a system of cultural monarchy which means it is not a pure or political monarchy, so the difference is only in the election of the governor. The Sultan who became king in the Sultanate of Yogyakarta was a hereditary claim from the palace and not because of his power ambitions. The position of the Sultan is still in line with the position of governor in general.
This makes the city of Yogyakarta 'special' compared to other cities in Indonesia. In addition, the city retains the authenticity of the Javanese philosophical structure without changing the function and meaning of the building. As one of the cities with world heritage, Yogyakarta successfully makes foreign tourists consider this city as one of the favorite destinations when visiting Indonesia.
