Many said that the word Malioboro came from 'Marlborough,' an English Duke living in 1811-1816. While in Sanskrit, the word 'Malioboro' is believed as a bouquet or wreath describing the glory of Keraton.

Do you know how to enjoy Malioboro? The best way to explore this 24-hour-access street is on foot. However, you can use “Becak/pedicab” or any ubiquitous four-wheeled horse-drawn carts called “Delman” or “Andong” available along the way of Malioboro.
