This palace have wide collection of things and stuff, some came from the 18th century. The guide will explain many different stories related to the palace, royal family & all of their heritages. Worth to visit.

The ticket price include Guide who really knows almost everything about the Palace, because I asked a lot of questions that does not goes along with what the guide used to take the tour. The Palace is not big and really peaceful and quiet during my last visit. There are wide arrangement of Palace collections. And because the Royal families... More

The building itself is impressive and highly recommended if you are a fans of authentic building. There is some interesting details in every corner of the palace with some antique furnishing. Inside the building, there is a big hall with some collectible things from the royal family. Tour guide will accompany and explain the history of the Royal Family. Unfortunately,... More

Each person has to pay IDR. 30000, and a tour guide will take you around. You should head there on a Tuesday or Thursday, when the royal gamelan will be playing. Our tour guide was thankfully good, as she explained the history of the place and the various meanings of architectural material choices. Sadly, it is quite damaged from natural... More

Good collection of artifacts and very well maintained grounds. Lots of family photos including the current Prince and his family. We had a homely feel at the... More

Having lived in Bali for many years, it is nice to see how other indonesia palaces look like. Pura Mangkunegaran's main structure which is the Joglo (javanese open air wooden structure) is said to be the largest joglo in Indonesia. What is nice is not only the guide explained on the history of the royal family and the palace, but... More
