Welcome to Demak

The town’s economic heyday has now passed and even the sea has retreated several kilometres, leaving this former port landlocked. But the role this small town once played has not been forgotten and the old mosque here is highly revered. In a lingering sense of the town's illustrious past, Demak is locally regarded as one of the most beautiful and well-tended in Java; indeed, the streets are litter-free, the tree trunks painted in harmonious two-tone colours, and even the andong (cart) horses are adorned with extra-elaborate headdress feathers.
