THE CASTLE OF MANGKUNEGARAN

CAKRA HOMESTAY SOLO..
Cakra II 15th Street, Kauman, Solo, Central Java...

Mangkunegaran.
Mangkunegaran Palace was built for Gusti Pangeran Adipati Arya Mangkunegara. It was built in 1757 after the Salatiga treaty that divided the kingdom between Paku Buwono II and Raden Mas Said or Sambernyawa Prince, who became known as Mangkunegara I. Mangkunegaran Palace has a unique and classic Javanese architectectural style that also includes some European features, including a big joglo (ceiling of the pavilion) made from teak wood. Mangkunegaran also has a fine antique collection with high historical value, including traditional masks, golek (rod) puppets, old gamelan instruments, and ancient books on the history of Majapahit and Mataram kingdom, which are stored in the Reksa Pustaka Library.

Open to the public: Monday—Saturday: 9 am — 2 pm, Sunday/National holiday: 9 am— 1pm Phone : 0271644946
