I don't really went in there but it was good to see there from outside and i can really sense strong Indonesian culture and old town/residence. If you are interested in history (like my dad) this place is good to see.

This palace/keraton hide behind the Kanoman Market, and its messy out there, not clean. And when you go inside, there's not much too see. Hopefully government can do something to make it more appropriate for tourists.

It is said that when the older brother went to hajj, he came home to find his brother claimed his throne. Wanted peace on his kingdom, they build the Keraton Kanoman and save his royal status. The place is dirty, need more trash bin placed.
