The Sacred Bath

People might have known Taman Sari, Yogyakarta water castle, but few would even heard about Warung Boto site, and Gua Siluman. These name was given by local villagers, while its original name and history are left almost unknown. The only story recorded about these two places is that this place was mentioned in one of traditional Javanese songs telling about the success achieved during the governance of Hamengku Buwono II (1750 - 1828) in Yogyakarta.

What an unfortunate, that it was raining hard shortly after I get there, so I had not much chance to get more pictures of this two beautiful sacred places.
