Dear Reader and My Blogger Friends,
A view weeks ago i visited Solo (Solo i talked about here was name of one of city in Central Java, Indonesia, not traveling alone !), I love some cities in Center of Java, The Buildings, custom, foods (although the main taste is always sweet) but their habitual or culture is always something interesting to be followed.
So My first attempt to let you know and the first destination in Solo is Hadiningrat Surakarta Palace (or in Indonesia is called, Keraton Surakarta Hadinigrat) until now this place is still operated as King’s dwelling (Sri Susuhunan Hamengku Buwono), and some sort of cultural events that be held in certain time of specific dates each years.
As like England has kingdom which is as a symbol of the country, in Indonesia has it too that stands still until now, although it doesn’t have the function like England.
A part of palace is museum, that gets us able to entering this place and get around to see historical stuffs like sultanate’s collections, European kings’ giving included, the palace heritage in replication like Gamelan. The Rest of the building is closed because it just for the member of the palace. There are lines on it.
So these are the best pictures i could take, i hope you like it and you can get the imagination how the palace is, please enjoy 🙂
This is traditional transportation you can find out, if you are around Central Java specifically
The gate that will take you to entering the palace
The writing on the tree is (Do Not Take The Sand From This Palace), probably some of you wondering, there’s myth or the truth of another one experiences that if you took it although just a little, you would take responsibility to meet the unseen creatures that live in this palace, you know this palace have been aged a hundred years, that you had to take it back to the palace if you didn’t want to get any risks or to meet them all your life.
This Tower is just for the king
The Pictures of The First Sri Susuhunan Hamengku Buwono until now, and all the important people for the palace
Some Collections of The Palace, Replicas, Traditional Musical instruments, and the old stuffs from time to time.
The Mosque of The Palace’s, like the buildings on the palace, this mosque still stay, with the good care in old constructions.
I will let you know other tourism places i have visited in Solo later in my next posts, anyway thankyou for reading 🙂
