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?

When we headed to Imogiri Kings Cemtery on a Friday late morning, the rain poured like cats and dogs. 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

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
