Sacred Tomb

Lonely Planet review

This quiet old town Kota Gede, which is now a suburb of Yogyakarta, was the first capital of the Mataram kingdom, founded by Panembahan Senopati in 1582. Senopati is buried in the small mossy graveyard of an old mosque located to the south of the town’s central market. You can visit the sacred tomb , but be sure to wear conservative dress when visiting. On days when the tomb is closed there is not much to see here.
