  • Eventhough this is new building to replace the old one that was burned in 2007, but it still give a great feeling of proud to be a Minangkabau, we have rich and complete "adat" from very very long time ago.
  • The center of minangkabau culture, awesome place.. now, there is a long stairs behind the palace to the top hill, it's called "janjang 1001"
  • Amazingly built traditional palace of Pagaruyung. Each part of the palace has its own function and clearly explained. This huge palace used to be im existence of King and his family, equipped with its food barn added with extremely great surrounding view
  • Awesome and worth the drive. Fee for foreigner. Once inside you can enjoy the the view from the huge building. Stairs are pretty steep inside so watch the climb in slippery socks.
  • Local tourist destination in West sumatra. You can take pictures with the local costumes (ala brides n grooms).
