At 10 a.m. the Grebeg Maulud procession began when Keraton Yogyakarta  guard units (perajurit Keraton)marched out of the Keraton Yogyakarta, passed through the Siti Hinggil and Pagelaran onto the Alun-Alun Lor, then turned west to enter the Masjid Agung.

The Gunungan, a food offerings in the shape of mountains symbolizing male and female fertility (lingga and yoni), were brought  from the Keraton to the Masjid Agung right behind the Perajurit Keraton’s (Keraton guard units) march.
