Unique Museum: Kraton of Yogyakarta
Monuments are tribute to the past and history. Living in the city, we have tons of them - some I like, and some not too much. Walking in the Sultan's Palace, we are welcomed with Wayang sound - Wayang stands for Puppet Theatre.
It's pretty surreal to see at least 20 folks playing with huge gongs, and drums in order to showcase a story of the past. With music, and loudness, you feel the intensity. In a foreign language, and yet the puppets and music seems to collide and make sense.
It's a museum of a living and a past. Pictures from the past, royal guests, and furnitures. This may not a grand as Versailles, it definitely has a spark of its own. I still yet to know if the rituals are for show or for real. We can keep it as is because that's what makes it unique.
Let's keep a lifetime of memories on this open journal. Life's meant to be lived. Tons of countries to see, and experiences to be lived. Life's good if make you make it be.
