Day 2-2: Keraton: The Sultan’s Palace (Yogyakarta, Indonesia)

The Residence of the sultan of Yogyakarta is the Kraton/Keraton also called  Kraton Ngayogyakarta Hadiningrat. Before going to the main palace we dropped by at the Kareta Keraton Museum. It houses antic horse-drawn carriages used by the sultans of Jogja, many of them are European  design.

A few blocks away is the entrance of the palace, there are two booth/entrance. The first is in Tepas Keprajuritan , and the other is in Tepas Tourism (Regol Keben). Kraton is Javanese word for a royal palace. When I visited the place not all ares are open to the public, but you can roam around the grounds and visit the museum to learn more about the rich history of Jogja.
