Tamansari Gua Sunyaragi cave is an important cultural site in the Cirebon city in the Western Java region of Indonesia. The cave is part of the Kasepuhan Palace (formerly the Pakungwati Palace) and is located at the Sunyaragi village near Cirebon. Spread over a fifteen-hectare area, one will find a number of artificial waterfalls within the cave as also beautiful gardens full of statues of majestic elephants, Virgin Sunti women and of the Garuda.
In the ancient times, the part of the Javanese island where the cave is located used to be full of all kinds of water bodies including magnificent waterfalls, ponds and many lakes. As such, the sultans of Cirebon built the Pakungwati Palace, of which the cave is a part, as a water palace which they saw chiefly as a place of spiritual escape.
This is in fact supported by the fact that 'sunyaragi' in the Javanese means 'in a silent form'.Places nearby:
