What is the Surakarta font?
Surakarta is a display face of western characters with numerous optional ligatures modeled after the graceful Javanese alphabet still taught in many schools on the island of Java in Indonesia, though it has been replaced by the latin alphabet for most everyday purposes. This is the second in Parquillian Design’s series of fonts inspired by some of the beautiful lesser-known native scripts of Southeast Asia.

It is always best to pay for a premium font rather than trying to find an illegal download. The benefits of paying for Surakarta is that you get the license to use it leagally.
