TAMAN SARI (SCENTED GARDEN) YOGYAKARTA WAS BUILT 18th CENTURY

I highly recommend you to visit this place, and ready to guide you, because this place is my Doctorate Final Project from University of Canberra  (2000-2005)

Taman Sari also known as Taman Sari Water Castle is a site of a former royal garden of the Sultanate of Yogyakarta. It is located about 2 km south within the grounds of the KratonYogyakartaIndonesia. Built in mid 18th century, the Taman Sari had multiple functions, such as a resting area, a workshop, a meditation area, a defense area, and a hiding place.
