After days of doing adventure tours in West Java with Java Private Tour, I finally arrived in Cirebon City to explore the arts, culture and history of the Kasepuhan palace in Cirebon, a historical place which in my opinion is very interesting, I am quite happy to be able to witness directly the ornaments of buildings and historical items that have a blend of Chinese, Indian and Indonesian. However, it is unfortunate because the tour guide service from the management at the Kasepuhan Cirebon palace has limitations in English communication, fortunately when I visited this place I was accompanied by a crew from Java Private Tour so that the crew from Java Private Tour could translate Indonesian and Cirebon regional accent into English, which finally made me understand the storyline about history, art and culture that was conveyed, and I very enjoy this tour.

The place is quite nice it seems the same one with the historical palace in Yogyakarta. But they need to add more guides who can speaks english better since I cant really understand what they’re trying to explain as they now little about English. However, all those historical stuffs there are amazing

When you came to Cirebon I think you have to visit this place. Since this is one of the Keraton in Cirebon. Very interesting visiting it. Especially they have "Museum Pusaka". In that musem you can see traditional Cirebon Weapon and some ceramic that given from China.

Is the biggest and oldest palace in Cirebon. With an area of ​​25 hectares has a unique architecture. This palace integrates elements from various religions and cultures in its building, combines European, Chinese and Javanese culture and combines elements of Hinduism and Buddhism. Which is a symbol of harmony between religions and cultures is maintained. There is a museum in this area that can be visited by tourists. Contains various heirlooms and painting collections from the kingdom. A historical relic of the great Islamic civilization. The most famous in this museum is the "Singa Barong" kencana train, which is the Sunan Gunung Jati vehicle.

Cirebon is not the only city with a "keraton" (sultan's palace). Compared with the somptuous keraton of Yogyakarta this palace in Cirebon may look a bit minimal, but on walk with a local guide (speaks unfortunately only Bahasa Indonesia) the tourist can discover many interesting facts.

As I entered this site I could see some old gates and buildings built by ancestors hundred years ago.
This area was well maintained. Still looked beautiful. I walked around with my family without any tour guide accompanied.
Some sites I visited were the palace's lobby, the old mosque of Sunan Gunung Jati, the two old wells on the back, the meditation places of Sunan Gunung Jati and Prince Cakra Buana.
Only the palace main building and historical relic storage I had no chance to visit.
I will come back here again someday to fell magical and peaceful environment.
One thing I must suggest all visitor is to keep area clean and no to litter.

Really enjoyed a peaceful visit here with my partner. Soon enlisted the services of a friendly local guide, who gave us a little tour of the palace and grounds. Particularly impressive is the recently-built museum dedicated to the history of the sultanate and surrounding area.
