Overlooking the River Musi in Palembang, Indonesia is the 18th-century royal fortress Benteng Kuto Besak which was once the heart of the Sultanate of Palembang. It was a strategic construction built in 1780 and took almost seventeen years to complete. This ‘Kraton’ once served as a defensive design against the enemies of the Sultanate before it fell to the occupation of the Dutch colonials and is at present used as the headquarters of Sriwijaya Military District Command.
