Moving a few steps to the south there is the building that is located higher than other parts of the so called Siti Hinggil, this is where the king sat Sinuhun or when celebrating grebegan.
Exit from Siti Hinggil southward we pass through two doors that the call Kori Renteng  and Kori Mangu (Renteng  = opposition in the liver, Mangu = doubtful).  So we see the giant wooden doors, called Kori Brodjonolo Lor. The word implies that Brodjonolo  brodjo gaman means (weapons) are very sharp, while the Nolo means thought.  So the meaning contained in it, if we want to pass through this door we asked for all things we must think deeply first, in other words we are asked to allways vigilant.
Through this entrance Brodjonolo we arrived at the court called Pelataran Kamandungan, on the left and right of the court there were two barracks.
