  • Here suppose to be full of history but unfortunately poorly maintained. I felt "gloomy" aura when came here. Its better to find a guide so we can understand the history completely.  more »

  • I never go inside, but I was walking trough it's complex from south to north. The palace complex seems still keep it culture very well. Love many buildings hidden behind high white wall with it's special door. There are many place signs writed in Javanese letter too. The top or crown of main entrance was the most unique parts from this Palace.
  • You can see typical transportation of Sultan at the museum. Walking distance from the Keraton gate, about 15 min. Many parking spots. Weeksdays are better to come here. Do not wear sandala to enter the palace
  • Menurutku keraton bagus untuk edukasi perihal sejarah Surakarta dulu seperti apa. eiiit tp saat aku di ruang Kereta Kencana, mohon maaf kesan magisnya terasa bangetttt. Tp tetep bikin nagih buat datang kembali
  • Vintage places. Best selat solo in Solo. Always crowded when lunch time.
  • This place helps me imagining the life of people who live in keraton. Especially about the wet market nearby
