Keraton Surakarta Hadiningrat, more famously known as Keraton Kasunanan, was built by Sri Susuhan Pakubuwono II (Sunan PB II) in 1744 as a replacement Kartasura Palace which was destroyed in the Geger Pecinan incident in 1743.
Kasunanan Palace has a total area of about 147 hectares, covering the entire area within the Baluwarti fort, Alun-Alun Lor (north), Alun-Alun Kidul (south), Gladag Gate, and the Surakarta Grand Mosque areas. Tourists can enjoy many original heirlooms from the Royal Family, such as sculptures, weapons, furniture, and other royal knickknacks. It has a characteristic blend of European and Javanese ethnic styles in every corner and layout of the Palace. This heritage building has undoubtedly become one of Surakarta's most incredible jewels.
