Located in a strategic location in the middle of the city of Solo, very close to the Surakarta Kasunan Palace and the Great Mosque. Walking in the alleys of this village feels like exploring a time tunnel and returning to the past, during the great age of the Kasunanan Palace. We can enjoy the nuances of the past Solo which is represented by ancient buildings on the right and left sides of the alley. Here you will see houses that still retain their original form such as a combination of Colonial-Javanese, Joglo and Limasan architectural styles. These old houses are now boutiques that display the results of their batik production. The unique thing from this place is that we are allowed to see the process of making batik which is an attraction for tourists who come to visit this tourist village. Another interesting thing about this place is that we don’t just experience a different batik shopping experience but our tongue and eyes are spoiled by the choice of a beautiful coffee shop with a unique decoration around this area. Almost all of the boutique houses here have a small cafe for tourists who want to unwind after batik shopping. "Batik Kaoeman" with its coffee shop named "Kedai Kaoeman" is one of them. So I highly recommend this place for you to visit during your stay in SOLO, Indonesia.

One of Southeast Asia's most interesting temples is unique in design and decoration.
Sukuh is one of several temples built on the northwest slopes of Mount Lawu in the 15th century. By this time, Javanese religion and art had diverged from Indian precepts that had been so influential on temples styles during the 8th–10th centuries. This was the last significant area of temple building in Java before the island's courts were converted to Islam in the 16th century. It is difficult for historians to interpret the significance of these antiquities due to the temple's distinctiveness and the lack of records of Javanese ceremonies and beliefs of the era. #ShivaBuddha #Tantra

Built in 1757 by the nephew of the King Pakubuwono II after a bitter power struggle, this smaller palace is still lived in.
I found the Mangkunegaran Palace one of the best presented and maintained examples of a Javanese Keaton I have ever seen. The buildings were well maintained and the tour was dignified and informative with some interesting artifacts some of which I have never seen before. There was a modest entrance price and we are required to observe some respectful protocols in certain places. We could purchase some Jamu as well as some quite unique batik in 2 places. Well worth visiting with the guide who also was happy to take many pictures for us. A great taste a culture in Solo.
