Taman Sari Palace

Taman Sari was the sultans' pleasure palace. Although seriously damaged by an earthquake in 1867, it has retained the old-fashioned charm of a spot devoted to relaxation and meditation. Behind the residence (thewater palace , as the Dutch called it), an enclosed area comprises threebathing pools : one for women and children, one for concubines and one for the sultan. Do not miss the " underground mosque ", actually a sort of atrium that was accessed via galleries and most probably used for some kind of religious service.
