Tamansari : The Water Castle


Tamansari is derived from two words, “taman,” means a garden and “sari,” which means either beautiful or flowers. Hence, the name Tamansari means an area of a beautiful garden adorned with various captivating plants and flowers.

Tamansari is located 500 meters in the south of the Sultan palace of Yogyakarta. The garden which is surrounded by artificial lake named Segaran with the fragrant scent of flowers which were planted surrounding the artificial island.

It was built around 1761 by the first king of Yogyakarta, Sri Sultan Hamengkubuwono I. But now, this place is filled by the human settlements and only remaining some little pool with fountains.



  1. As I shared Sigoese in response to your Post The Kiss, it is so good when God’s creation is appreciated and cared for but so sad when it is overlooked or neglected.

    Thank you for sharing your gift of Photography with us and may you be greatly blessed and those you Love.

    Christian Love from both of us – Anne
