At first i was interested to go to this place. Eager to know, to see and to educate myself about how beautiful this place gonna be as we can read and see "old and historic" goods.. But what i found?? Beggars and boxesss written shodaqoh.. As i know.. shodaqoh is amount of money you give willingly but here.. The meaning of shodaqoh is give me your money or i will block your way.. And the boxes are everywhere like just a few steps away and guarded by 2 or more people.. Youngsters.. The tour leader also didnt say the words clearly , only himself could hear the voice.. Pricey for entry tickets is alright we can understand.. But improper way like this is embarrassing..Overall.. I feel tricked and disappointed. My advice.. If.. If .. You really want to see this place.. To pray or sightseeing.. Please bring loads of small change like IDR 5000 or IDR 10.000.. And if you want to donate.. Donate at the right place..

here you can feel the calmness but unfortunately the shrine is already circle by walls what we can see is just a thick wooden door so now what we can see is just a complex of grave of other people who paid to be buried near the shrine

Went there on December 2015. Before I went there, I already informed that there will be people asking for money in that place, I notice that. But when I arrived at this place, wooww, I just felt like I being robed!! There are lots of people who asking for money and they push us to give it to them, they said they are official from the place and you cannot go inside if you not give them money. They are like, in everywhere of this place!! And the fact is, this place not that big, not many to see there. And the guide not that nice to serve us, he didn't give us information about this place willingly. And he just asked whether we want to go up, to the Sunan's graveyard. But we need to pay more, in my assume its kinda lots of money. And when I go outside the place, I gave him money because he guide us, he didn't happy with it, I think he want more than the amount I gave him. This place is one of the tourism place in Cirebon, the government should take care of this place more. And try to avoid this rude things over there, or else other tourists maybe won't go there, except those who go there for their ziarah. I'm not happy with this place. Sorry, its just my opinion.
