Here, we can learn the greatness of Kesultanan Cirebon and the history of Sunan Gunung Jati. The architecture of the building is great and beautiful and instagrammable. So, don't forget to take picture while you are there. Besides learning history, you could also learn to take good picture.

We had been to 2 Keraton in Indonesia, Jogjakarta and Solo So, when we know there is another Keraton, we go here Don't expect as big as Jogjakarta, but merely the same with Solo Not really properly maintained, A little bit disappointment since this is Indonesia's heritage, but hopefully the more people come here, they can earn more to make...

Actually, the place was under my expectation. This place is need a lot of improvements in cleanliness & facility (put AC in main room at least, build proper Toilet). The garden & collections needs maintenance. The main room (king & queen room) was close when I visit Keraton (I am not sure it will be closed forever or temporary).

This attraction is the biggest among the other keraton. So if you have limited time, just skip the others. This one was more spacious and more to see. But this one is the most expensive.

Well, maybe I come here at peak moment, it was on public holiday. But it was far beyond my expectation. I heard that there will be lots of unauthorized collections made by local natives, but it shocked me that they are every corner of the path to Keraton. The street hawkers are really undisciplined, trashes everywhere, and they are even... More

With some time to spare I thought I'd go over and look but it was a bit disappointing compared to other Keratons (Royal Palaces) I've seen elsewhere in Indonesia. Definitely in need of more historical conservation maintenance.
