Yes, our Sultan opens his royal residence for us to come and visit. The Sultan of Yogyakarta has a unique role in our republic. As the head of the royal family he has to lead the activities of preserving the Javanese cultures and heritage, while as the head of the kingdom, he is the governor of the Special Region (a province with special rights and obligations). 

For about one and half hours, I will guide you around this huge compound and take a close look of the royal buildings and important places, as well as the regalias, some documentations of the Javanese ceremonies and cultural events.

The Palace is open for public on Tuesdays to Sundays from 09 am to 01 pm (GMT+7). Please use to check the local time in your own location

Hello, my name is Gagat. I was born and grew up in Jakarta (the capital city of Indonesia), but my mother came from this city. And since year 2001, I have lived and enjoy the hospitality of the people of Yogyakarta.

During this time, I have developed my affection to this city and its people, as well as its cultures and heritages. And today, I am very happy to share them all with you.
