Okay I will explain in detail from the beginning of its history

Surakarta And Javanese Culture- The Origin of the City of Solo

Surakarta And Javanese Culture

At first, Solo was a village and the correct name was Sala, not Solo

Sala is a fief village or village that is exempt from paying taxes

This village is led by a man named Ki Ageng Sala

that’s why this village used to be called Sala

Why change to Solo?

The mention of the word Sala as Solo stems from the arrival of the Dutch soldiers,

they cannot or have difficulty pronouncing the word Sala with the vowel “A”

These Dutch people always mention the word Sala with Solo, finally, people in the village also mention the word, Solo

but then the Kartasura palace can be retaken

However, due to its dilapidated condition, the ruling king at that time, Pakubuwono 2, decided to relocate the Kartasura palace to a new area.

Finally, after a meeting was held, the Kartasura palace was moved and the location chosen was the village of Sala or Solo

and since then Solo turned into a new royal location
