Summary:It is one of the few remaining royal palaces in Asia that still functions as a centre of governance - the Kraton of Yogjakarta. Everything about the palace has a hidden meaning, from its floor tiles to the carvings on its stones. With a methodical dedication to detail, its elaborate ceremonies with the presence of virgins and widows make the Kraton Palace one of the most fascinating places to visit; yet, it remains one that many are not familiar with. This documentary unveils the secrets of the Kraton Palace for the very first time.
