WW: Kanoman Palace, Cirebon, Indonesia

Kanoman Palace, Cirebon, West Java, Indonesia

Welcome to Kanoman Palace in Cirebon, West Java, Indonesia.

It was another trip to Cirebon, the hometown of my grandfather from my late dad's side. We made it together with my cousins too. It was an enjoyable trip and it was a memorable walk down the lane. My aunties were born and raised here and they loved looking at the places where they spent my childhood. 

The Kanoman Palace, Cirebon, West Java, Indonesia

We stopped at Kanoman Palace, on of the palaces in Cirebon. Different from our previous visit to Cirebon (Read: Family Trip to Cirebon, West Java), this time we saw the place where my grandfather was the direct descendant of the Kanoman Palace, from his grandmother's side. It was exciting to see this place although we have to admit that it has its days . It must be expensive to take care of this huge palace. 

The unique thing is this palace is built in an area surrounded by the market. I read from the book that the Sultan or the King loved his people so much he allowed the people to build markets, gather, and do a lot of public activities in the area. So when we want to visit the Palace now, we have to go through the traditional Kanoman market.

Enjoy some of the photos I took during the trip.

  1. What a nice place.
    Saya suka banget sama ornamen piring yang ditempel ke dalam tembok itu.
    Piringnya sepertinya bermotif China ya?
    Sayangnya kurang keterangan di foto2nya mbak Indah.
