Keraton Kasepuhan Cirebon- Indonesia

This is one tourist attraction in the city of my birth, Cirebon. tourist kasepuhan cirebon palace is very strong with the early history of the establishment cirebon city. if you are interested to visit the palace Kasepuhan in the middle of the city of Cirebon? Very easy to reach this court, precisely located at Jl Palace 
Kasepuhan No. 43. Maybe because it was so close to the city center, Cirebon own citizens many who have never entered into this court.

Admission (year 2007) of  Rp. 3000 / person. Entering the area, we will be accompanied by a guide dressed in traditional families are still the palace courtiers. Kraton has a fence and gate are made of red brick structure, and supposedly taped without the use of cement at all. In the palace there are nuances between cultural assimilation Javanese, Sundanese and even China and Europe. In the court yard there is a statue of a white tiger's tail 2. In the area of the palace there is also the Great Mosque Cipta Rasa.

Royal palace in Cirebon has some similarities that may become standard with keraton2 in Cirebon, among others, facing north, then east there is a mosque, has alun2 to the people gathered, and have a statue of King Siliwangi tiger symbol. But of the three existing palace in Cirebon (Kasepuhan, Kanoman and Kacirebonan), the palace seems Kasepuhan the best-kept look.

Inside the museum is located in the North there is the palace of heritage objects such as tools of war empire, cannon and golden carriage used during war. This train is called Train Lion Barong, head of an elephant trunk holds a trident (the influence of Hinduism), the winged eagle (Islamic influence) and tailed dragon (Chinese influence). Train Shockbreaker already have the technology and also has a mechanic to flap its wings. But this train since 1942 has not functioned again and just went out to 'washed' every year on 1 Syawal. Unfortunately conditions are not too manicured, but things in it are hundreds of years old. While at the museum in the southern part of the palace there is jewelry, knick-knacks, dishes, and equipment used at the palace of Sunan Gunung Jati era.

Seen a lot of cultural influence of Islam in the ornamen2 palace. But in this court are also many Chinese also porselain2 lights of Europe and also keramik2 describing image 2 of the characters in the Bible. There is also a painting of King Siliwangi with a tiger, which was highlighted in the picture of King and tiger's eyes will follow us wherever we are in position. Hhmm ... curious? Please try your own. In some rooms there is a tray containing a voluntary contribution for the cleanliness and maintenance of the museum. The guide had told me that in the event Dorce Dorce Show had possessed at this place, because it does not excuse before taking a picture at this place and are recovering after being given a drink from the well at the palace by a guard who dimantera key. The message is that every visitor should maintain an attitude & do not be vain ..

On the whole palace is quite worth a visit, because it was easily accessible and affordable tickets, tour guide was enough detail to give an explanation. Keraton Kasepuhan open from 8:00 to 16:00 hours for the day Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday & Saturday, for the day Friday from 7.00-11.00 hours, then closed for Friday prayers, and then re-opened at 14.00-16.00 for the day while Sunday / Holidays from hours 8:00 to 17:00

NB: this is the cultural richness that is owned by our beloved country Indonesia raya, so we should maintain and preserve the legacy of our predecessors ... article hopefully can make us all become children of Indonesia upholds the noble culture of their own country ... Indonesia raya greetings
