General description: Sultan Palace Yogyakarta

The Sultanate of Yogyakarta is a State of Indonesia located in the center of the island of Java. Here is the kraton of sultan.

The kraton word means a royal palace. The word comes from ratu which means 'King'. The Palace was built between 1755 and 1756 by the Sultan Hamengku Buwono I. Around the Yogyakarta kraton, there is a sort of "royal" village that is separated from the rest of Yogya.

There is the sultan's Palace, the houses of the servants of the Palace, shops, administrative buildings and elegant pavilions. Kraton is built along two axes: East-West and North-South. Kraton is a spiritual place, and Yogyakarta the royal center. Not to be missed!
