Kraton Mangkunegaran

Interesting
Technically a pura (stately home), as opposed to a kraton, this palace was built in 1757, after the partition of the kingdom of Mataram and now houses Prince Mangkunegara IX and his family. In the courtyard, the huge pendopo (3 270m2) was for many years the biggest of Java. The Pringgitan, "official reception room", displays portraits of sunan, while the princes' collections showcases masks, jewellery, ceremonial adornments and chastity belts for men and women.
