Photo Review Sultan Palace Yogyakarta (Kraton Ngayogyakarta Hadiningrat)

As you may have guessed I'm a big fan of The Amazing Race. In Season 19 one of the pit stops was in Yogyakarta at the Sultan Palace.

The entrance fee is a cheap $1 and that includes a free sarong (should you be wearing short pants) and an English guide. There isn't too much to see but the area also hosts Water Castle with its underground mosque which is a real sight! (more about this in tomorrow's post).
