dramatic lighting for bro @mtrphn 😁. I have some fun in this shot. We’re in some kind of old kitchen and stock room in the old palace complex. The place is not this dark, I just lower the light exposure in the setting. heh.

It’s interesting to interact with the Abdi Dalem or the Royal Court Retainers and ask them about the Kraton and the way of living inside the palace. We even can take selfie and speak with them when they are not busy or praying.
.
the tradition for abdi dalem or the civil servants and soldiers of the Kraton started since 1755 at the Yogyakarta Sultanate under the reign of Hamengkubuwono I. .
.
They are dedicate to the royal family and thus need to be well educated in the art of “credo watak satriya” or the noble and knight character, in manner and action. To quote Kingsman “manners maketh man."

I like walking around the palace’s courtyard planted with Sawo kecik (Manilkara kauki; famili Sapotaceae). I was told by the Abdi Dalem or the Royal Court Retainers that the trees are planted here to give good vibe and smells good.

We are lucky to be able to see the Javanese shadow puppet show in one of the pendopo (building), Bangsal Srimanganti at Kraton Yogyakarta.
.
.
Kraton Yogyakarta is one remaining palaces in Indonesia. Not the oldest but the most sacral in terms of location of the palace and also the center and home of the Sultan of Yogyakarta. (Yes, the royal family still lives here).
.
The word Kraton comes from Ka + Ratu (queen or King in Javanese) + an = Kraton = a center place for religion, philosophy and culture.
.
. Do you know any known Royal family still live in the palace? Have you visit any of the palace? .

you’re welcome under my ☂. Between the walls of the Royal Palace of Yogyakarta (Kraton Yogyakarta).
.
. There’s two entrances:
.
. From the North, stop at Alun-alun Lor (Lor Plaza) and enter through Tepas Kaprajuritan gate to the first section, bangsal Pagelaran & Sitihinggil. .
. And the second gate not far: Enter through Tepas Pariwisata gate for Sri Manganti dan Kedhaton sections.

The altar of ancestor. . Attached to the main mansion, the Pinang Peranakan Museum has its own house of worship for the ancestors. .
. The details are simply amazing, especially the porcelain figurines on the roof and under. .
