Beringharjo Market, which has been established since March 24, 1925, has historical and philosophical values with the Yogyakarta Palace because it has gone through three phases, namely the period of kingdom, colonialism, and independence. The name Beringharjo has a literal meaning of banyan tree forest which is expected to provide prosperity for the people of Yogyakarta. This traditional market which has been established since March 25, 1925 is planned to be preserved as one of the Indonesian Cultural Heritage.
PT Patra Jasa participated in the arrangement of the Beringharjo Market as well as the arrangement of the Malioboro Area by providing Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) funds.
In addition to making it a cultural heritage, the purpose of this activity is to emphasize that Beringharjo Market is a shopping destination that can be visited by tourists from various regions and countries.
PJ President Director of PT Patra Jasa, Mr. Hari Tjahya Wibowo said, “When you hear about the city of Yogyakarta, what comes to the public’s mind is, of course, Malioboro and Beringharjo Market. Therefore, Beringharjo Market deserves more attention because it is one of the attractions for tourists to come to Yogyakarta.”
He continued, “With Patra Jasa participating in the structuring of Beringharjo Market, it is hoped that it can give positive energy, not only to the traders at Beringharjo Market, but also to the surrounding community and visitors who come. By creating a comfortable and cool atmosphere, many local and foreign tourists will visit the market.”
