About Grebeg Besar Ceremony | Yogyakarta Heritage Trip

Sri Sultan, the King of Yogyakarta Palace hold Grebeg religious event three times a year based on Javanese calendar. This event aims to worship God for his blessings to the Palace and people of Yogyakarta. Each date of the event is held at the same time of the date of following celebrations:

  1. The celebration of the day of birth of the Prophet Muhammad ( called as”Grebeg Maulud”);
  2. Grebeg Syawal to celebrate Eid Al-Fitr; and
  3. The celebration of Eid Al-Adha (called as “Grebeg Besar”).

The Sultan’s Donation in the Grebeg Event

Every time Sri Sultan holds the Grebeg event, he will always distribute a donation. The donation is in the form of agricultural products such as fruits and vegetable. And the people know it as “Gunungan” since the products are arranged to resemble a mountain shape.

Prior to the distribution, the Palace servants will carry the Gunungan to the great Mosque of Yogyakarta by walking. And the Palace Soldiers will escort the trip accompanied by groups of traditional musicians.

At the Mosque, the religious leader will lead the prayer to thank God and to wish for his salvation and protection for the Palace and people of Yogyakarta. After the prayer, the people who attend this event may take the Gunungan and bring it home. Since the number of Gunungan may be limited, people will try hard to get the Gunungan. As they believe that bringing it home will bring them such blessings as prosperity and health.

Grebeg Besar Ceremony as per Islamic/Javanese calendar will be held every 10th month of Dhu al-Hijjah. It is at the same date when Moslems will celebrate Eid Al-Adha. So this year, the ceremony will fall on 22 August 2018.
