Keraton Kanoman Cirebon Reviews
Not like what I thought Mar 23, 2012
I thought I would see the majesty of a palace here. I was wrong. What I saw was a palace with a poor condition. There were small buildings/gazebo, seemed in the past they used these gazebos for doing some rituals/events (I am not so sure). No guide, no map, no direction, nothing to offer. Those gazebos have walls, painted in pink.... Imagine! spotlight pink! Even the quality/the way it was painted was really bad. As if it was handled by some un-skilled labors..
I felt sorry for the condition of this palace. I think the local government should renovate and manage the palace into a nice package so it is decent to be visited by tourists. Just take the example of palace in Yogyakarta or in Bangkok where they have a really beautiful and well-maintained ones. It contains a high historical value so I wish the government do some improvements soon. Hopefully.
