Portrait of an Abdi Dalem in the Royal Palace (Kraton) of Yogyakarta, Indonesia

An Abdi Dalem | The Royal Palace (Kraton) of Yogyakarta, Indonesia

The Abdi Dalems of Indonesia are royal servants. They live a life of devotion towards the sultanate palace and their sultan. The Abdi Dalem pictured here is a guide at the Royal Palace (Kraton) of Yogyakarta who gave me a moment for me to capture him while he was guiding a group.

Thankful to Wonderful Indonesia and the Indonesian Ministry of Tourism for a great opportunity to see Indonesia.
