Java Jamboree: Seeing is Believing!

The Water Castle is one of the must see places in Yogyakarta. Who would want to miss a place owned by a man with 27 wives? That really beats King Henry VIII who had six! The Water Castle doesn't really cover a wide area like the ruins in Sukhotai, Thailand but it is definitely one unique place. For us, we missed at least one interesting spot there, the Masjid Sokotunggal which has a unique single pillar but visiting the underground mosque, Pulo Kenongo itself was already a worthwhile experience. You would walk out of it yet to another world, a world of ruins and even to a little settlement. You'd not believe that there are people living in the vicinity until you see the densely populated Kampung Taman which lies, side by side to the Water Castle with your own eyes...
