What makes Indonesia so magical to travelers and people who live here, is the vast and visible variety of cultures, languages, peoples and religions. This variety makes Indonesia unique compared to most other countries. Both travelers and Indonesians sometimes wonder how it is possible for this diverse archipelago to stay united. Recent political developments have made the question more relevant than ever. This tour gives you the chance to go behind the stage of religious performance in Yogyakarta. I lead you through sites of worship of the officially acknowledged religions of Indonesia, Islam, Christianity, Hinduism and Buddhism. In addition, you will get to experience the unofficial, but nevertheless very alive traditional believes of Java which are mixed in with all other religions. This tour offers you an unique opportunity to gain a better understanding of this religious diversity and how they are related to political and social issues in Indonesia today. The information provided by your guide will make you better equipped to understand what you see around you here in Indonesia, and will broaden your perspectives on our world on the verge of religious conflicts.
My name is Mukhlas which means sincere, and I love to do everything sincerely and with all my heart. In Bahasa Indonesia, Sang Pramuwisata means the tour guide.
