Know More about this tourShortly after leaving your hotel, you will visit The Sultan’s Palace, also known as the ’Kraton’. Constructed in the 1970’s by Sri Sultan Hamengkubowono I, the design of this artistic city was based on blue prints of what is known today as Javanese Palace Architecture. Located in the heart of a municipality and still holds the function as the Sultan’s Palace, it is now part of Greater Kraton– called Taman Sari - with a population close to 25,000. The municipality has its own market, shops, batik painting studios and silver industries, schools and mosques serving all those living in this part of the city.
From here, your guide and driver for the day head to the Sono Budoyo Museum (this museum is closed every Monday, alternative sightseeing will be provided for tours operated on Monday), the most impressive museum in the whole of the region where a collection of Javanese art is on display with some items that date back hundreds of years. Items such as Wayang Kulit puppets, Topeng (Javanese masks), kris (religious knives) and a collection of beautifully-painted batik samples are on display here. We end the morning with lunch at a local restaurant.
After a great meal, we continue to Kota Gede. This trade and handicraft district has some interesting architecture, narrow alleyways, and some great bargains for those looking for high quality goods. Most of all, Kota Gede is known around Indonesia for its lively silver industry since the first silversmiths and artists opened their shop at the beginning of the 1930’s. We end the day at one of the leading Batik studios where mainly ladies apply intricate designs on garments and hereby respecting their cultural heritage.
