Castle
“The Kraton Ngayogyakarta Hadiningrat is a palace complex in the city of Yogyakarta, Indonesia. It is the seat of the reigning Sultan of Yogyakarta and his family. The complex is a center of Javanese culture, and contains a museum displaying royal artifacts. It is guarded by the Yogyakarta Kraton Guards. The complex was built in 1755–1756 for Hamengkubuwono I, the first Sultan of Yogyakarta. It was one of the monarch's first acts after the signing of the Treaty of Giyanti, which recognized the creation of the Sultanate of Yogyakarta under the Dutch East India Company. A banyan forest, protected from flooding by its location between two rivers, was chosen as the site for the palace. Tugu Yogyakarta (the Gilig golong monument), on the north side of the old city, symbolizes "unification between the king (golong) and the people (gilig)". The palace's artifacts are believed to have the power to repulse evil. The palace hosts gamelan, dance, macapat and wayang performances. Besides exploring the Kraton, do not forget to wander around Taman sari (Taman sari water castle) where the princesses used to bath in the early days.”
