The complex site is 25 hectares wide and located at an altitude of about 195 meters above the sea level. The location of Ratu Boko Palace complex we’re above the hills makes us wondering. How was the way of making the complex and the water systems for the pond. While at the era, there was no heavy device such as cranes.

In this site complex there are two caves, named Lanang and Wadon Cave. There appears to be a relief of female genital symbolization (Yoni symbol) above the corridor. These caves seem to be uses as rides for meditation. The palace complex is very capacious with fresh grass and exotic areas.
