Triwindhu Antique Market Surakarta – Nestled in the center of the city of Solo lies a market unlike any other; a market possessing the ability to transport you through time, pulling you tens, or even hundreds of years into the past. This is the Triwindu Antique Market: the center of excitement for lovers and collectors of antiques. Also known as Windujenar Market, Triwindu Antique Market is located on Jalan Diponegoro, not far from the Mangkunegaran Palace in Solo, Central Java.Upon entering the market complex, you will be greeted by a pair of statues – a man and a woman sitting in the cross-legged position. Solely dedicated to the sale of antiques, the atmosphere in Triwindu differs from other markets. The building itself, wherein the market is situated, is a two-story, wooden structure that has stood since 1945, adding to the “antique” feel of the building.
Strolling across the numerous aisles, you will be treated to various forms of antiques from different times in the past. The artifacts housed within these walls vary greatly in shape, history and cultural background, yet all display an element of high artistic value and admirable craftsmanship. Antiques found in the market can be made of gold, silver, copper, wood, ceramics, paper or cloth.

A collection of rare books, antique batik cloth, and ancient money and coins are also among the vast display of items Triwindu proudly holds. Random obsolete household items can also be found here, such as gramophones from Europe, antique kitchen and dining utensils, shoes, handbags, and other various items that were once part of everyday life.
The second floor is home to larger items ranging from automotive tools, no longer in existence, to old fashioned bicycles. Antique cabinets, beds, tables, chairs and other furniture items also line the aisles of the second floor.
