This place made a big impression on me. The climb up the steps, through the trees and graves. We went early in the day, to avoid the heat. Be aware that the compound with the graves is closed for the whole of the Ramadhan fasting month.

I must say the makam is eye opening, especially when you see that the islamic dynasty has some european style on their casket. But you gotta brush up your bahasa indonesian if you would like to understand the guide. Only 15000IDR to wear the required clothes to go in.

Imogiri Mataram's Royal Cemetery. In the beginning, Imogiri was prepared by Yogyakarta's first Sultan, Agung. He wanted to be buried at Mekkah but there are many reasons why he could not be buried there. As an alternative, he grabbed a fist of sand and suggested throwing it to the land of Java, and where the sand fell a cemetery would... More

Inner tombs are only open on Friday and Sunday. try to reach this site early morning to avoid crowd - definitely have to try to use steps (do not use short cut to reach the peak by motor bike or car). good place to mediate and understand ancient javanese history.

Each morning javanese men in traditional costumes "bless" the sacred graves with syncretic chants. Not only are their chants beautiful, but it gets you into a state of... More

Imogiri can be visited anytime but the inner tombs are only opened on Friday, Sunday and Monday with restricted hours. I came with my tour guide and driver to Imogiri and a dalem on motorbike led us by the road up the hill to the entrance of the royal cemetery, so we don't have to sweat on the many steps... More
