Maimun Palace, Medan

3.0
Admire the colorful architecture and extravagant interior design of Maimun Palace, a palace that displays a unique blend of Malay, Arabic, Spanish, Indian, and Italian influences. Built between 1887 and 1891, the palace belongs to the Sultanate of Deli. Get the most of your visit by taking a guided tour to learn about the building's history, as the 30 rooms lack written information. In one room, you can dress up in traditional costumes for a picture. Be sure to leave some time to wander in the attractive gardens.

  • 昔の王族のコスプレが出来ます。 時間があれば是非チャレンジしてみてください。 インドネシア人の友達が交渉して二人で80Kルピアでした。 いろんな色のチョイスがあるので迷いましたけど、黒が1番位が高い王様、女王様が着ていた色だそうです。 写真を撮った時も建物、インテリアの色とよく調和がとれている気がして黒にしてよかったなーと思いました。
  • Historical place. It's about Sultan Deli's kingdom. If you visit Medan then you should visit this place
  • A great site to learn about a big part of Medan's cultural history - when the Sultans of Deli reigned the place. The palace is gorgeous inside out and is relatively well-maintained. Visitors can dress up in traditional Melayu costumes for photo-ops and on late afternoons there is live Melayu music with three-man band (accordeon, drum and bass) which is great if the visitors sing along with them. Too bad the public part of the palace is turned into a large museum shop that is noisy and messy.
  • Malay music and Maimun Kingdom's rare collection were maintained really well, and that's make this palace a great museum.
  • It is so unfortunate of us that we really could get inside when we visited there. It said there are some royals official visiting the palace at the time so it was closed for hosting the guests and left all the visitors visited there in vain.
