Keraton Yogyakarta, Indonesia

We went to Yogyakarta, Indonesia, last December, mainly to see Biennale Jogja X. And while we were there, we thought it'd be great to let the kids see other cultural tourism spots as well, like the Borobudur and Keraton Yogyakarta.

Keraton Yogyakarta, built in 1755 by Sultan Hamengku Buwono I, is currently the palace of Sultan Hamengku Buwono X, the Sultan of Yogyakarta and the Governor of Yogyakarta Special Region (Daerah Istimewa Yogyakarta). Above are some pics I took of Keraton Yogyakarta. I was in awe to see a ceiling with layers of intricately carved moldings like that. Love it. Click here to see more pictures. Enjoy!
