Plengkung Gading, Yogyakarta.

Plengkung Nirbaya atau Plengkung Gading ini merupakan gerbang yang terletak di sebelah selatan Keraton Ngayogyokarto Hadiningrat. Dekat dengan alun-alun kidul/selatan Kota Yogyakarta. Plengkung Gading ini merupakan pintu keluar raja yang wafat untuk selanjutnya disemayamkan di Makam Raja-Raja Imogiri. Konon, selama Sultan masih hidup di dunia, beliau tidak diperkenankan melewati Plengkung Gading ini. Ada menara sirine di Plengkung Gading ini, yang hanya digunakan untuk dua momen, yakni setiap tanggal 17 Agustus untuk memperingati peristiwa detik-detik proklamasi Republik Indonesia, dan menjelang buka puasa saat Ramadan.
