Approximately 1 km to the southwest of Kraton Yogyakarta there is a Tamansari, site consists of canal, pool, garden and palace which has built at the same time with the Kraton itself during 1758 - 1765. It was functioned as a recreation facility of Sultan and his families. The architecture is a combination of European, Chinese, Hinduism, Buddhism, and Islamic style. Some damages occured during Diponegoro War and an earthquake in 1876. Some remaining buildings left and still can be seen are Gapura Panggung, bathing pool or Umbul Kawitan and Pamuncar, Gapura Agung (main west entry to the pool), Mosque and Sumur Gemuling (praying room for King and the Queen), Taman Segaran Arch, Kenanga and Panembung Island. Tamansari is also well known as an art village since there are many art galleries with some collections of batik and painting from the local. The main pool has just been restored recently and it will be followed by other parts of the site.
