We were in Yogyakarta around New Year's Eve, and all the other places we visited were very crowded. When we arrived to Imogiri on January 1, we found ourselves in a very quiet environment, which came as a relief after the crowds of the previous couple of days. To visit the tombs, you must accept to change into traditional Javanese... More

First a few warnings: STEPS - Unless entering through the top, there're about 500 steps between the car park and the entry so, come prepared. DRESS CODE - Traditional Javanese. You can change into your own costumes there, or hire one. A staff will help you put it together (Tip 10,000 to 20,000RP) FOOTWEAR - Not allowed inside the compound... More

i did come there view times. but still, this place is very nice, even it needs effort to go there because its in the sub area of jogjakarta. but, you can also visit some places thats from nature, such as pines forest and the rice fields around there are so nice. dont forget to do culinary stuff, though

Truly different experience, and a must see while in jogja. It has interesting stack of stairs. the tomb location are divided between east and west based on the origin of jogja and solo royal family. Better take a local tour guide with you to hear interesting stories on the whos and what.

It takes a lot of steps to get there. This is truly a holy place. Respect the place and the people. Have clean thoughts and don't make noises. Plus try to count the steps when you go up. Count again when you go down. Same numbers?

We arrived at the hill bottom around eleven something, without any alternatives, we took our lunch at the nearby food stall as the ceremony would be held at 1 p.m. The cemetery is for the royal families of Yogyakarta, therefore we...

Located in the south part of Yogyakarta, this cemetery complex lies in one of the regency which is Imogiri. Public transport is a bit difficult to reach the area so usually rent a car or motorcycle will be the better option. Make sure to bring enough amount of water because you will need it. Need to climb many many stairs... More
