Live like a local in Candirejo

candirejo village

Start the day with discovering Candirejo, a traditional Javanese village. Candirejo is rich in natural culture, in depicting traditional Javanese culture and in daily life through traditional houses, plantation resources, performance art, ceremonies, art and culture, agriculture as well as local food. You will participate in their daily social activities to feel the true traditional village atmosphere, culture and their way of life.


In this village we present the performance of Jathilan, a magical and dramatic dance performance on a flat bamboo horse that becomes trance. He moves a lot, rolling himself on the ground several times, whipped several times by the shaman. There is something beyond logic. It’s really an original sight of this village.
