Traditional House of Yogyakarta | Kraton Ngayogyakarta Hadiningrat

Kraton Ngayogyakarta Hadiningrat is a royal palace complex located in the city of Yogyakarta, Yogyakarta Special Region, Indonesia. The palace is the main seat Sultan of Yogyakarta and his family. It serves as a cultural center for the Javanese people and contains a museum that displays the sultanate's artifacts.Yogyakarta Palace was built by Prince Mangkubumi in 1755-1756 (Javanese year: 1682),[1] several months after the signing of the Treaty of Giyanti between Prince Mangkubumi of Yogyakarta, Hamengkubuwono of Surakarta and Dutch East India Company. A Banyan Forest was chosen as the site of the palace due to its location between two rivers which were considered good protection from possible flooding.

On 20 June 1812, Stamford Raffles led a 1,200-strong British force to attack the walled royal city of Yogyakarta. The Javanese, although outnumbering the invader, weren't prepared for the attack and were taken back by the event. In one day the city of Yogyakarta fell and the royal palace was sacked and burned. The total loot from the palace valued £15,000 in gold, jewels and hard currency (which values £500,000 today). The event was the first time an attack has been carried out into a court in Java and as a result the sultanate was completely subjugated to colonial authority.

Most of the palace's current form are built by Sultan Hamengkubuwono VIII who reign from 1921 to 1939. It suffered from an earthquake in 1876 and 2006, and was subsequently rebuilt after the devastation

Kraton Yogyakarta’s traditional Javanese dances

A palace of sultans, the cultural centre of Yogyakarta. A place to relax, observe and absorb the traditional dances of Java. This is where I find myself on a Sunday morning, the Kraton Yogyakarta.

The Kraton Palace
Jogja is known as the cultural heart of Java. It is governed by the Sultan of Yogyakarta (which was confirmed in direct elections for the government) that has in the Kraton (or Keraton) his official residence. On Sunday morning, the Sultan’s Palace hosts a traditional Javanese dance performance.

A cultural Sunday with Javanese traditional dances
I arrive at 10:30 to the palace and find the first row in front of the stage almost full. I struggle to find a spot to set the camera up. The gamelan (Indonesian instrument ensemble) keeps us company; it’s percussion instruments and fine female voices rocking us. Some of the audience close their eyes: living the music or sleeping?

At the sound of the hour four female dancers head towards the stage, followed by a host of photographers and lighted by flashes. They are the first of three Javanese traditional dances that carry us to another time, a time of sultans and concubines, of imperial palaces and dances… The dances are slow, but meticulously synchronised, and the effort and emotion the dancers commit to it are well patent on the sweat that accumulates in their faces. This is the high point of the palace, definitely worth the visit.

The Sultan’s Palace
When the dance is over tourists are assaulted by hosts of school teens on an assignment: practising English while interviewing the visitors. The first couple of times you do it willingly, after that you start to get impatient and need to remind yourself it is a small deed to repay all the kindness of the Indonesian people.

The palace itself has little to see. Three gamelans and plenty of resting areas you cannot step into, some museums with washed out paintings and objects, nothing much to entertain you. Just saunter along for a while and the get onto a becak (the most common means of transportation, a bicycle with two seats in the front) heading out of the palace.

And you, what’s your favourite classical dance?
