  • Address: Yogyakarta, Indonesia
Kota Gede is a historic suburb within the city of Yogyakarta, Indonesia. It was once the capital of Mataram and is home to an ancient mosque that holds the remains of the first sultan, Panembahan Senopati. Senopati’s graveyard can be found in the grounds of the mosque, which is located to the south of the neighborhood’s central market.

Kota Gede is made up of a labyrinth of narrow streets, lined with mosaic-tiled houses that were once home to the upper-class. The neighborhood is also known for being the main hub for the city’s silver industry; Jalan Kemasan is the main street leading into town and this is lined with silver shops, where everything from handmade bowls to modern jewelry are made, bought, and sold.

Practical Info

To reach Kota Gede from the city center, take a 3A or 3B bus. It’s only around five kilometers away, so hiring a bike and cycling is also a good option. If visiting the Panembahan Senopati’s tomb, be sure to dress conservatively.
