  • I love this place. Unfortunately, I was there during the renovation. So, some places are closed due to the renovation.
  • i don't know i also give 5 star for historical place in Indonesia like temple ,museum and another historical place, on there you can know how "Solo City" growth so far with more "Sultan" or "Governor"
  • Palace of Pakubuwono. Established in 1745 by Pakubuwono II. Surakarta Sunanate and Yogyakarta Sultanate are both the successors of Mataram Sultanate.
  • I'm talking about the museum only. For only IDR 10,000 (around USD 0.7), you can go inside the museum. The abdi dalems (Sunanate inside staffs) are good and welcoming tourists with superb hospitality. They are also very informative. What pissed me off was the photographers on the museum entrance. They were taking photos of me without permission and they were selling the prints after I exited the museum. Because it is a photo of me, I felt forced to buy the prints. It was IDR 50,000 (around USD 3.7). While it may cheap for foreigners, it was steep for Indonesians. Make sure you are covering your face when entering this museum.
