Hadiningrat Surakarta Palace (Keraton Kesultanan Hadiningrat) – A Part Of Museum Which Keeps Sultanate Collection

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 πŸ™‚

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.

  1. Wow. Such a special treat to visit the palace! Thank you for bringing us there. Lots to see, and I love the blue color they use throughout the grounds.

  2. I really like the color and the delicate decoration of this palace. I am also curious about the unseen creatures that might appear when someone took the sand from the palace. Did they give more information about those creatures on the broad? πŸ™‚ I mean are the creatures an evil one that harms people?

    • Yez they are so stunning, even the building! I am not sure actually it was myth or real event, when the first time i looked at that written i was wondering too, then someone told me about that/ it just made up story so that people was scared to take it, because i had ever heard the sand could be used to something useful πŸ™‚
