Mataram in Java and Aceh in Sumatra were two contemporary kingdoms in the 17th century lndonesia Archipelago. Therefore it can be hypothesized that the Palace City of both kingdorns shares a distinct similarities in their topological characteristic. This study aims to look at that hypothesis. The knowledge that was used to compare the Palace City of both kingdoms was abstracted from various secondary sources such as Graff and Arraniry. From those sources the topological arrangement of the Palace City were constructed and compared. From the study it can concluded that in terns of spatial 4odeg such as the inner and central sanctum of both kingdoms are very similar (in both kingdoms the inner sanctum are known as the “dalam”. ln both Kingdoms the capital city were organized in term of a virtual axis (inner to periphery). However, the virtual axis that governs the Palace City of Mataram has much more cosmological meaning than that of the Acehnese Kingdom.
