List of Sacred Places in Java

List of sacred places in Java

  • Note that Java has at least three main cultural regions determined in part by the linguistic usages.

Regions in Java

However, as known in Javanese language usage, vocabulary usage in the south western central Java region (Cilacap) can be significantly different from north eastern central Java region (Mount Muria).

In each region there are significant numbers of locations that are either currently known as sacred, or have been documented in the past as sacred places.


In most cases all Candi of Indonesia locations are considered as sacred - despite being in ruins or in advanced stages of decay.
