imogiri-makam-1Imogiri, which lies about twenty kilometers south of the city, is the site of the royal tombs of Mataram, Yogyakarta and Surakarta. It has a serene and peaceful atmosphere with many large, shady trees. The graves can be found on top of a hill, approached by 345 stone steps. Tradition has is that anyone who attempts to count the steps will always arrive at adifferent result. The tombs are divided into three main courtyards. The first, which occupies the centre of the complex, is the most important and contains the graves of Sultan Agung and the succeeding princes of Mataram. The other two, on either side of the central courtyard, are for the Susuhunans and Sultan of Solo and Yogya respectively.
