When you visit Taman Sari or the Water Castle, do not miss to see the Sumur Gumuling mosque and Gedhung Kenanga as well. The 'water castle' used to be one big complex but the one most tourists will see is the bathing pool.
Operating Hours : 0900 - 1400
Entrance Fee : IDR 13000 per adult
Parking Fee : IDR 5000
Hire a guide who can show you around. Although you can see the bathing complex on your own, getting around the maze of village can be quite a challenge. You might be able to find Gedhung Kenanga but finding the underground Sumur Gumuling mosque was tricky!
Usually the (local) guide will not set a rate. You decide how much tips to give.
The guide I hired explained did not know much about the historical value of the complex but he was very good at getting around. He took me back to the front gate using a shortcut when I told him that I was in a hurry :)
Read more about Taman Sari here so you'll know about the story of the complex better than the guide ;)
