ENJOYING THE LEATHER PUPPET SHOW

ENJOYING THE LEATHER PUPPET SHOW

Yogyakarta is one of the best places in Indonesia to experience the Javanese traditional art of the puppet show, locally known as Wayang Kulit or leather puppets. Each puppet is carved by hand from buffalo skin, and represents characters of the Hindu epic stories of Ramayana, Mahabharata, Pustaka Raja Purwa and Purwakanda.. There are hundreds of different puppets and characters. Each of these is operated by the same person, who at the same time is performing also as a storyteller, called Dalang. The leather puppet show begins when the dalang takes out a puppet in the shape of a mountain called gunungan.

We will take you to enjoy WAYANG SHOW in the evening start from 20.00 - 22.00.
