The palace was built by Sultan Hamengku Buwono I in 1755. It consists of seven complex. Since my time was limited, I only visited one complex, at the north side next to the north square.
In that complex, visitors can see many historical ancient stuffs. It is recommended to take a guide so we can understand more about the history of Yogyakarta sultanate and including the myth around it.
Keraton Yogyakarta is one of the must visit places in Yogyakarta. It's definitely a must visit place. Not because of the beauty or the grandeur, but the riches of the culture and the history.
