Malioboro, The Heart Of Jogja

Malioboro is a legendary shopping area that is one of the pride of Yogyakarta(or Jogja). The naming of Malioboro comes from the name of a member of the British colonial who once occupied Jogja in 1811-1816, named Marlborough.
The Dutch East Indies established Malioboro in the center of Yogyakarta in the 19th century as a center of government and economic activity. It also symbolically intends to emulate the court's authority over the grandeur of its Palace which dominates the region.
To support this goal the Dutch Colonial then established:
1. Fort Vredeburg, (builtin 1765. Now the fort is used as a museum and open  for public )
2. The house of Yogyakarta Resident (now the Presidential Palace in Yogyakarta or 
     Gedung  Agung)
3. Beringharjo Market, Hotel Garuda (formerly a place to stay and gather the colonial elite).
4. Malioboro Shopping District (the center of the colonial economy)
The historic buildings located in the Malioboro area are witnesses to the city's journey from time to time.
