Benteng Kuto Besak, Palembang Overview

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.

This fortress has now turned into a major tourist attraction with the polishing of the surrounding area here where the visitors can relax in the open space and enjoy the beautiful scenery of the Ampera Bridge by the River Musi at night. The fortress is however out of bounds for the public.
