Abstract
 
Description
The Sultan's palace, or Kraton, is the cultural and mystical epicentre of Java. While most of its economic and political power has vanished, the Kraton's occupants continue to be the prototype of refinement for the majority of Central Javanese. Beginning with a brief history of the Sultanates of Solo and Jogjakarta, this book explores the religious and cultural symbolism associated with the palace buildings. It also offers an insight into court life, enlivened by personal reminiscences of members of the royal family. - from Amzon
