The Heart of Central Java

The industrial city surrounded by tea plantations

Semarang

Semarang is the fifth largest city in Indonesia in the north of the island of Java. A lot of religious sights of different confessions are located here. Demak Great Mosque fascinates by its size and technology solutions (for example, big umbrellas that open to protect people from the sun). It can hold 15 thousands of parishioners. Sam Po Kong — the oldest Chinese temple in the city. Originally established by Admiral Zheng He, whose ten meters bronze statue is located on the territory of the temple. The oldest building in Central Java is the Dutch Blenduk Church of the 18th century. You should definitely try a local dish in Semarang — lumpia. It is a type of spring rolls filled with bamboo shoots, dried shrimp, or chicken. They might be served deep-fried or fresh. Lumpia is served with a chili sauce.
