Lara Djonggrang: Dining in a Private Museum

Lara Djonggrang 2

The main attraction of Lara Djonggrang is the decor, both exterior and interior.  Starting from the large banyan tree in the front yard up to the inside of the home which was converted into a restaurant that is unique and a bit mystical.   The rooms, the tables, the benches, the chairs, the lighting, the floor are all beautiful.  Not to mention innumerable collections of antiques.  The statue of Lara Djonggrang, a visualization of the mythical Javanese girl on her way to heavens is one of the Masterpieces in this Restaurant
