Artist's Description

Nikon D40, f/8, ISO 200, Lens

Karaton means a place where the Queen-King lives, other word is Kedaton, with the same meaning. In the Javanese teachings, it has a deep philosophical meaning.

Keraton is the name of the Sultan’s Palace in Yogyakarta, Central Java, Indonesia. This 200-year-old palace complex is situated right in the heart of Yogyakarta. According to Javanese belief, the ruler is the “naval” of their universe. Hence, the Keraton is regarded as both the capital of Yogyakarta province, as well as the hub of the cosmos. The Keraton houses not only quarters for the ruling Sultan and his family, but also the dynastic regalia, private meditation and ceremonial chambers, a magnificent throne hall, audience and performance pavillions, a mosque, a royal garden, stables, barracks, and more.

Keraton was constructed from 1755 and continued for almost 40 years, during the long reign of Hamengkubuwono I. After he died in 1792, little else was added to the complex. Today only the innermost compound is considered Keraton proper, whereas the lanes and lesser compounds became part of the city.
