Candirejo Village: EXPERIENCE RURAL JAVA’S TRADITIONAL LIFE

When visiting the impressive Borobudur Buddhist Temple in Central Java, the temple itself is not the only place of interest in the area. Not far from Borobudur is an interesting little village called Candirejo that is definitely worth a visit.

For a break from “modern” life, designate a few days to watch, learn and experience life in this-this quaint town, where ancient traditions are still followed, and indeed the village is best known for how it has maintained the authenticity of such traditions. Candirejo Village is located in the Borobudur District, about 3 kilometres southeast of Borobudur Temple in Magelang, Central Java.

The village is set amidst lush green fields and tropical rainforests and populated with friendly people. Candirejo is said to be a symbol of Javanese culture where visitors can experience and participate in a variety of cultural attractions and activities. Many homemade handicrafts and souvenirs are also made here, such as beds, benches and bookshelves of bamboo, and bags to explore the village you can see local plantation, Playing Gamelan Traditional Music, looking local people who made chip from Tapioca, looks for big Progo River and mats made of pandanus; all of which are available for purchase.

The word Candirejo is a combination of two Javanese words: Candi and Rejo. Candi means temple, but it can also mean stone, and Candirejo happens to be quite a stony area. The word Rejo means fertile, so when put together, Candirejo got its name as the land that was full of stones, but yet remained fertile.
