    1. should be. one of the most complete and rich historical site i must say. and one of the most beautiful hidden spots around town and all. it was the leftover of javanese coast civilization sophistication.

      1. lasem – rembang had an amazing megalithic site name terjan. will post it next time. not to mention from the bronze period. first portugese church convert to be the local library center. kartini’s tomb. classic chinese houses and even opium dent. a big buddhist monastery also. oh, not to mention the amazing food! it’s a splendid beauty scattered all over.
