Only a small part of the palace is open to visitors. But for such a small entrance fee (about US$1), it is definitely worth a visit and to cross off the bucket list.

Interesting architecture and culture. Various gifts from all over the world presented to the sultan were on display. Intricate Batik were also on display. Do note that you are not allowed to take photos of the Batik that is used by the sultan. Quick and...More

Experience Jogja's unique heritage in Keraton, or castle. It stores many history of Jogja's monarchy since the 1st generation. Very good for educational trips with your young ones.

It was so bad that is was so sad. There’s nothing to see except for a few old buildings. Indoor is very stuffy. Old pots, ceremonial stuff, and shirts. Do yourself a favour and give it a miss. It was so bad that I didn’t...More

I expected more from this. The two cars at the entrance were nice, but the rest was poorly maintained. If you have limited time to spend in Yogyakarta, I suggest to skip the palace and move directly to the watercastle which is very close.

It's a nice and peaceful place to visit. A guide is okay, but don't expect too much. As there is not too much to see in Yogyakarta you can just walk in and enjoy the silence.

I visited Yogyakarta when I was in high-school. Since then, Yogyakarta had changed, and history had been written. The King's Palace had shown how old is the city. The culture remains and history continues adding for more years coming. Our tour guide was amazing. He...More

To get to the inner palace proper you need to find the correct entrance which is located at a side street near the Clock Monument (Tugu Jam). Set this as your destination if you are using Grab or Gojek to book a car. If you...More

Nice palace with some rooms displaying items of historical significance. We visited with our own guide but if you don't have 1, there're many on standby outside the palace you can hire. Not a very large place, so a short visit will suffice.

For the palace, the ticket counter opens 9am - 2pm (if you are already inside by 2pm, you can take your time) And for Taman Sari, the ticket counter opens at 9am, and I'm not sure it's until 2pm or 3pm.
