After that, through two doors, you can see 2 exquisite ponds. The ponds’ water looks bluish and inviting. Because this area is not a bathing place, so the pools are prohibited from being used for swimming.
Two ponds near the gate are one of the ponds in the Taman Sari Yogyakarta. The names of the other three pools are Umbul Panguras pond for the king, Umbul Kawitan for the princesses and Umbul Pamucar for the royal concubines. The pool area has been decorated by various ornaments like fountains with a shape like a dragon’s head. Around the vicinity of the ponds, flower pots are being used as a decoration to increase its appeal.
Around the first two ponds, there is a gate that was once allowed to enter only by the king and his family. On top of the gate, the king usually enjoyed the beauty of the Taman Sari. This area is still equipped with an artificial lake and the park still full of beautiful flowers. Sometimes, there will be a gamelan and traditional dance show. This area used to be a private area only for the Jogja royal family. The gate is equipped with stairs made of teak wood. The condition of the stairs is still sturdy and gives an artistic impression.
