The small complex hosts several bathing pools, canals, as well as rooms used for leisure and relaxation by the Sultan and his family — and also, allegedly, secret rooms for his concubines.
No swimming is allowed, not matter how tempting the water looks.
The European-styled complex, built in the 1750s and adorned with Javanese motifs, has the potential to be jawdropping, if only more funds were spent on restoration. There are also a number of small batik galleries nearby.
