"KRATON - Tamansari" Yogyakarta Things to Do Tip by livethedream

Yogyakarta Things to Do: 322 reviews and 732 photos


The Tamansari (Water Palace) was the harem of past Sultans. There's a swimming pool for the children and ladies of the harem, and another pool exclusively for the use of the Sultan. The Tamansari is very nice, newly renovated and I'm guessing it must look very much like Hugh Hefner's mansion.

It would be wise to engage the services of a guide to show you around and to the Tamansari. The area is such a maze, no signages, that I would have lost my way. I paid the guide Rp5000.

Entrance fee to Tamansari: Rp7,000

Directions: The entrance to the Tamansari area is from the Bird Market. I had a guide to show me around and as I said the area was a maze so I wouldnt really know the directions =)
