Royal Ambarrukmo Yogyakarta has a long early life story from the establishment of “Jenu” which was a royal garden in the reign of Sultan Hamengku Buwono II on 1792 until 1812. It was still used as a royal garden until the reign of Sultan Hamengku Buwono V. In his era, “Jenu” was changed to “Pesanggrahan Harja Purna” which was once used as a place to welcome special guests outside the palace. In 1898, the era of Sultan Hamengku Buwono VII, “Pesanggrahan Harja Purna” was transformed into “Kedhaton Ambarrukmo.” His Majesty furnished the place with additional buildings similar to Kraton Yogyakarta. It was used as His Majesty’s home after he abdicated the throne. Sultan Hamengku Buwono VII spend most of his time here until his death.

During the reign of Sri Sultan Hamengku Buwono IX, “Kedhaton Ambarrukmo” was often used for public interest. For instance, in 1947 this beautiful place was used as the administration office of the Sleman government. Long journey short, in around 1960, by the suggestion of Ir. Soekarno who was the first president of the Republic of Indonesia, both Ir. Soekarno and Sri Sultan Hamengku Buwono IX decided to build a five-star hotel with a signature touch of architecture from Ir. Soekarno. They used the pampasan fund from the Japanese to build one of the first five-star hotels in Indonesia. The hotel was named Ambarrukmo Palace Hotel. Onwards, in 2011, this magnificent hotel got a big renovation and transformed into Royal Ambarrukmo Yogyakarta, a five-star hotel that is famous for its Javanese culture and tradition.

Ndalem Ageng nowadays is used as a private museum, which before was used as the place of Sri Sultan Hamengku Buwono VII and his family rooms. Today, it has a wondrous Gamelan named Kiai Yasa Arum and a set of wayang kulit. The museum also has many batik clothing, various kinds of Batik, and also pictures and paintings of the Kasultanan family. Meanwhile, Bale Kambang is a stunning water castle located behind Ndalem Ageng, which used to be a place for Sultan to pray.
