Taman Sari Gua Sunyaragi used to be a water palace for the Sultans of Cirebon. This part of the Javanese island was formerly enveloped by a lot of lakes (in ancient times Lake Jati used to flow in this area), ponds, swimming pools and magnificent waterfalls.
“Sunyaragi” in the Javanese language literally means “in a silent form”. This place used to be a place of spiritual escape where the Sultans would come to meditate in the serene surroundings.
