The ticket entrance is very cheap, you can also visit sumur gumuling from this taman sari area. It's better for you to take the guide with, so you not only got the beauty of the park and also the stories with you. You can explore every detail of the room including sumur gumuling ( an undergroung mosque ). Many students... More

My students found it a bit boring. It was alright but once you've seen one you've seen them all. Not the biggest highlight of the trip.

It's not a wonder like the ancient temples or other impressive indonesian places but it's actually a nice visit. In particular it is nice to walk on the surrounding streets, with the city open market and the nearby mosque.

This is a wonderful glimpse into Jogjas rich cultural history. Since our first visit 15 years ago they have completed renovations and the site is the better for it. Definitely worth the visit!

Not very well maintained but still it helps understand how the king lived. You need approx 30mins to see it. Be aware that at the entrance a guy approached... More
