Castle Tourist Spot
Tour the royal halls and courtyards of Pura Mangkunegaran, a palace dating from in 1757. Built under the rule of Mangkunegaran I, it still accommodates the royal family today, although it has opened certain parts to tourists. View the interesting combination of traditional Javanese architecture and the obvious European influence on the interior design. As your guide takes you on a tour through the palace you'll find small exhibits displaying some of the royal family's collection, and might be able to catch some live gamelan music with a traditional dance accompaniment. Use our Solo vacation trip planner to visit Pura Mangkunegaran on your trip to Solo, and learn what else travelers and our writers recommend seeing nearby.

  • A great place to study the history of keraton solo and it's kings. Very affordable. If you are lucky, you can meet the king himself. Hiring a tour guide would help you learn about this place way deeper than just going around yourself.
  • A historic kingdom in the city of Surakarta that was once part of the kingdom of mataram and still survive until now.
  • The mangkunegaran palace Great to tell the part of history keraton surakarta In here u can see n tell by guide the history of mangkunegaran
  • I visited this palace two weeks ago. It was an interesting tour. I arrived nearly 15 minutes before close, but they still welcomed me greatly. Their guide was also very professional and informative. I simply love it and recommend to visit this palace whenever you are around Solo. You won't regret it.
