The kraton or palace is worth-visiting. There are some fine buildings to see and interesting exhibits. Mostly dating from the 18th century. You are free to stroll around. There is the main palace building, the water gardens, the museum within the kraton, the gate house, and a small museum across the road.

I was shown around the museum and palace by a lovely young lady who spoke excellent English. Museum has much on interest; a carriage gifted by King George of England, a huge Koran plus photos of the kings of Sumenep.

The collection awaiting inside is so very impressive, unfortunately some pieces are falling apart due to lack of funds to properly take care of them. But very impressive all the same. Massive storage of furniture and royal fixtures from centuries ago. Truly inspiring which should be taken better care before it is lost.

The guided tour was very worthwhile taking in as it did the royal horse carriage museum, the kraton and the taman sari. It was an ideal starting point for a later trip to the royal cemetery at AstaTinggi. The bupati's office is behind the kraton and he walks through the old section to host events there. There is no doubt... More

Situated at the eastern island of the dry, barren island of Madura, Sumenep is, without a doubt, the island's finest town. Though it is not the largest settlement on the island today, Sumenep trumps all other towns in history, culture and allure. There are only a few more charming towns on Java itself. This small city has a history dating... More
