A couple days ago, I went to Tembi House of Culture to watch “Music Highlights at European Capitals”. It is my first time to go there despite the fact that I was so eager to go there long time ago. However it didn’t decrease anything since I was enjoying visiting that place so much.
Tembi House of Culture is a unique ‘living museum’ owned by Mr. Yuswantoro, a former kompas jonalist who is interested in researching and preserving javanese culture. This is a complex which consists of spaces used to developing and understanding local culture. In the middle front of the house, there is pendhapa (Yudonegaran) as a place to play gamelan and wayang. this is supported by a next-door room where visitors can see owner’s collection of wayang. Beside this main building, there are room for painting exhibition (Gandhok), music concert, dancing, and oldies collection. This is such a complete place for culture lovers to enjoy the art!
However, Tembi is not merely a house of culture. This is a good alternative for those who look for a weekend time with families or friends since it provide you with traditional houses to stay the night, beautiful garden, swimming pool, unique javanese restaurant and of course, a fresh village air and scenery. For those who want to have a different meeting or other event, Tembi House of Culture also provide you with two meeting room called Mrican and Gamelan Lor. This is in a quite affordable cost that you dont need to worry much about it.
So, have a nice cultural time ^.^
