Maimun Palace, Medan

1.7
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. For Maimun Palace and beyond, use our Medan trip itinerary planning site to get the most from your Medan vacation.
