A Historical Place in Yogyakarta Dec 27, 2008
Keraton Yogyakarta [Yogyakarta Palace] or Keraton Ngayogyakarta Hadiningrat is currently the palace of Sri Sultan Hamengku Buwono X. He is the sultan of Yogyakarta and also the governor of Yogyakarta province.

The palace was built by Sultan Hamengku Buwono I in 1755. It consists of seven complex. Since my time was limited, I only visited one complex, at the north side next to the north square.

In that complex, visitors can see many historical ancient stuffs. It is recommended to take a guide so we can understand more about the history of Yogyakarta sultanate and including the myth around it.

Keraton Yogyakarta is one of the must visit places in Yogyakarta. It's definitely a must visit place. Not because of the beauty or the grandeur, but the riches of the culture and the history.
