The beautiful building is the former house of one of the sons of Sri Sultan Hamengkubuwono VII, Gusti Pangeran Hangabehi, which ruled Yogjakarta in 1877– 1920. The historical building is still rtistically decorated with furniture from the late 19th century which gives a strong traditional Kraton-like influence.
