The Ramayana Bowl Relief
This is also because the Kasunanan personnel, even though they are led by senior leaders from the palace, but they will not be able to be trained and move fast. The Dutch at that time saw the palace troop hierarchy as very rigid. Where the leader must lead his soldiers directly without exception. This was also exacerbated by poor troop morale and discipline. This troop was seen as suitable only as a mere display. They may even appear as hindrances against enemies instead of aiding the war effort.
Furthermore, in the 4th floor of the Gold Treasure Room, the Emperor was impressed when he saw the Prajnaparamita statue which is often called the ‘Monalisa from Java’ because of its beauty. The head of the National Museum Unit and curator, Chandra Dewi, said that the motif on this statue inspired batik craftsmen in Java to create the Jalaprang motif.

In the end the Sultanate palace fell on June 20. Hamengkubuwana II was caught, again dethroned and exiled. In the city of Solo itself, resident Alexander G. Adams was ordered by lieutenant governor Thomas Stamford Bingley Raffles to fire a salute with cannon at the Vastenburg fort, marking a British victory. Adams also sent a messenger to Sunan to the libby museum tell the events of the attack in detail. This was to make Sunan amazed and leave various ways of resistance against the British. Furthermore, the conspiracy between the two heads of state was finally uncovered. Pakubuwana IV had to give up Patih Cakranegara, who was the liaison, to be exiled by the British. Apart from that, the Kasunanan had to give up their troops being reduced and their status as war troops released.
Cheong Wa Dai.
When the battle had not yet started, the defense force was dealt a heavy blow. This happened when the British ships began to be seen from the height of Jatingaleh. The desertions intensified when news came that British troops had landed and were in control of Semarang. This desertion happened to everyone, whether European or native personnel, soldiers or officers. Not to forget, elements of the Kasunanan and Sultanate troops also joined the desertion on September 15.
