The regent's residence or kabupaten is an example of the Javanese concept of government. Meant to impress and to entertain guests.
Yet it is also open and accessable. Just walk into the porch, greet the watchman, and you are free to walk the grounds.
It is the privilege of a king to keep a caged tiger, even today when the Sumatran tiger is an endangered species.

Directions: North side, Purworejo town square
