  • This is the traditional house of minangkabau, the outside and the inside is so majestic, beautiful and extraordinary architecture. Only with 15.000 IDR, you can enjoy the beauty of this custom house.
  • Interesting, when we were there, school students were practicing traditional dance and musics. A good visit, but very hot in the noon.
  • The Pagaruyung/ Minangkabau palace is beautiful and unique. Inside the palace, we can see the history and the traditional decorations, etc
  • Can't believe I had been here. Amazing palace, near from gadang watch and easy to get there. We can rent traditional clothes and take pictures. It also offers cheap entrance ticket for local and foreigner tourists, IDR7,000/pax for local adult and IDR12,000/pax for foreigner.
  • 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.
