Home Yogyakarta City Diponegoro Museum
Sasono Wirotomo at Tegalrejo is the former residence of Prince Diponegoro, one of Indonesian's national heroes. An heir to Sultanate of Yogyakarta, the Prince led an uprising against the Dutch colonial administration for five year start from 1825 to 1830. He was eventually tricked into negotiations, arrested, and exiled to Sulawesi until he died.
Sasono Wirotomo houses a small museum containing Diponegoro's Keris and other possessions. Scratches on the arms of the chairs in the museum are believed as Prince Diponegoro's fingernails while he was trying to control his anger at having been deceived.
