This listing is poorly named, though I'm not sure how to get TripAdvisor to change it. Imogiri is the name of the whole district while the reviews here refer to the Makam Raja (Graveyard of the Kings) which happens to be in Imogiri. A beautiful quiet little tourist spot unless you visit on a public holiday or weekend when it... More

For you who really love to know and experience Javanese culture, we recommend Imogiri Royal Cemetery to visit. You will have to wear traditional clothes if you'd like to see the top cemetery. Alam Bahasa provides Field Trip to Imogiri and other places too. So much fun :-)

.. you are full prepared to dress as a java man or woman, and go inside at very limited moments. Nothing to see from outside the graveyard and no picture taking allowed.

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
