Our guide suggest us to visit this Graveyard, it is just a different place than other place we ever visited on our travel journey. The history behind made this graveyard looks so special.

Imogiri is a royal cemetery. It was established by the first sultan of Jogyakarta, Sultan Agung, in 1645. The site has mystical significance and access requires following certain rituals, such as wearing appropriate clothing. Imogiri is not close to Jogyakarta. A guide may be helpful, but sort out financial considerations in advance. An entrance fee is not charged, but a... More

Climbing to the cemetery of the sultans of Yogyakarta and Solo is a magical experience. Not only because of the view from the mountain but above all because of the atmosphere of this holy sight. The opening times are tricky, but if you manage to get there when you can actually go in, you will be taken through a real... More

The ride from Jogjakarta to the Imogiri Kings Cemetery is a pleasant & scenic one, filled with green lush paddy fields along the way. The current map location on TA is inaccurate! Search for Makam Raja-Raja Surakarta & Yogyakarta on Google Maps or Waze! (TA map staff please take note; I'd reported earlier via TA mobile app) There are prayer... More

It is a good experience to know the other old cemetery that relates to the old kingdom of Javanese people particularly from Sultanate of Jogjakarta. Just short tips, you better prepare to climb up hundreds of stairs to reach the main building uphill. The place looks ordinary from the outside, but take a local guide to explain more comprehensively on... 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
