Keraton Kasepuhan or Kasepuhan Palace is one of few Keraton in Cirebon, and the largest one here. The Sultan/King still lives in the area. Its a great site, but from the first step you enter the Keraton, you can see signs of neglect everywhere, from walls to grass.
The Keraton itself consist of a few main area, main palace, chariot museum, ancient stuff museum, gallery, and old sacred wells, and other area.
Main Palace is a nice area to visit, it is where the Sultan receive his guest. the wall decoration is quite an art. At chariot museum you can see an ancient royal chariot used by the Sultan, make sure you hear the explanation from the guide, quite a great technology despite its age, don't forget to see Prabu Siliwangi painting here too, it's a must see.
Overall it's a nice site to visit, to see how Indian, Chinese, and Javanese culture blend. Hopefully the local goverment pay more attention to the maintenance of the place.
