The water castle is difficult to find and there are a lot of rickshaw drivers trying to take you from the palace to the water castle which is unecessary and annoying. There is also a lot of guides trying to force themselves on you once...More

We walked here after visiting Keraton or Sultan's palace. It was not too far but we got lost initially until we asked a local for directions. This is a historical site and reflect the lifestyle of the early sultans. Quite nice to walk around. Not...More

A couple of interesting areas and photo opportunities but wasn't particularly impressed which was a shame despite having a guide. Yes go but don't expect Windsor Castle. .

Located in the heart of Yogyakarta. You better to ask a tour guide to accompany you if you want to know better about this place. If you okay with yourself you will enjoy nothing but just take a picture.

It's not a big area and it is located at quite a strategic location in Jogja. Tamansari is apparently one of the historical buildings of Sultan Palace or Keraton Yogyakarta. Tamansari means "A Beautiful Garden". During its heydays, Tamansari was a recreation and a royal...More

There isn't much to see beyond the first pool other than the underground mosque which gets quite busy with snap happy tourists. It's cheap though and nice to walk around the houses situated on the old sultans pleasure gardens area
