Visit the Yogyakarta Sultan Palace – Excellent Jogja Driver +62 819 1553 4286 – The ruling monarch of Yogyakarta, Sultan Hamengkubuwono X, reigns from a palace, or Kraton, located in the middle of the city. The Kraton serves as a religious and cultural center for the locals: religious processions wind through the Kraton to the nearby Masjid Gede Kauman on special feast days, open-air festivals are held on the Alun-Alun Utara field next to the palace, and daily cultural performances are conducted at the Bangsal Sri Manganti within the Kraton.
The “Palace” may not be as grand as the royal residences you’ll find in Thailand or in Europe, but the buildings are rich in symbolism: the tour guide you’re required to hire at the gate will prove extremely helpful in untangling the legends and symbols associated with the Sultan and his sprawling residence.
