Only the main room of kraton is open for public. The family member gives explanation about kraton. It will be good if other rooms are open to be seen.

Its tipically malay palace with dominanly yellow paint all over the wall. The door locked so visitor can not see what is inside. Free entry. And people at the neighbourhood is friendly too. Masjid jami' is only 150m away from this palace
