  • Old palace, well maintain and modified to be an exibition hall. Located beside main road. There is a huge car park in front of it 
  • The building is well maintained, very cheap entry fee of RM 2. Good to spend 30-60 mins visiting the place, see the Royal King items and weapon. 
  • Loving the structure especially the interior. A museum that explain in details of the ritual and the kelantanese tradition.

  • Istana Jahar (Jahar Palace) is built by Sultan Muhamad 11 in 1887 for his grandson Long Kundur. It has luxurious woodcarvings that showcase the excellent craftsmanship of the Kelantanese. Apart from that, photographs, artifacts and traditional handicraft reflect on the Kelantan rich and sophisticated heritage.
  • Midly interesting, even if the armory part was well explained with great pieces of art. And as Kota Bahru is not the most beautiful city in malaysia it was nice to spend some time there.
  • This place can give you more understanding about the culture of kelantan
  • Not the most exciting experience on earth. But if you have some time in Kota Bahru you can go there and lern some interesting stuff.
  • great place.. one of the attraction in kota bharu..
