We visited the cemetery and walked the 454 steps to the sultan's grave. There are hardly any tourists and for a small fee you can borrow appropriate clothes to visit the grave. It... read more

My misgivings about the value of this visit were quickly confirmed on arrival. The month of Ramadan is probably the worst time (daytime at least) to come here so be warned! I was the only tourist visiting the site and it was a very disappointing experience. The self-appointed guide did not let my poor command of Indonesian get in the... More

I came here with a friend from Yogya. A woman dressed us in traditional Javanese sarongs and we walked barefoot up the steps to the sultan's tomb. There are small wooden houses, very dark, lots of incense burning; you kneel down in front of the tomb and cover with flower petals. The experience is very sacred, solemn and intense. I... More

this place is a cemetery for Kings of Yogyakarta and its Family, thousand of step ladder which no one can counting exactly the same amount of step he or she stepping on. Entering this places we should use traditional and unique shirt. Obey all the rules and regulation if you do not want to feel something goes wrong by itself

We visited the cemetery and walked the 454 steps to the sultan's grave. There are hardly any tourists and for a small fee you can borrow appropriate clothes to visit the grave. It was great experience, however please be aware that you should be in good shape (and drink enough) to walk those steps at very high temperature.

Yeah, that's what's felt whenever we reach this place. Makam Imogiri (Imogiri Graveyard) is popularly known as one of spiritual/religious trip's destinations in Central java. It has such spiritual nuance other places may not have. With its mysterious stairs and sacred graves, many tourists keep visiting this place all the time.

My friend told me this satay is legendary around Jogja. Considering the remote location, I was surprised when I saw a bunch of foreigners enjoying "sate klathak" with us in the restaurant. The satay itself is quite delicious. If you like goat meat, you will definitely love this satay. It smells like goat. I myself found goat meat a bit...... More

If you would like to see the view from the mountain or to visit the tombs of the Kings of Mataram era, this is the place to be.

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
