  • A unique palace turned museum which house interesting antiques. The building itself is one of a kind as it was built without the use of any nails, nuts or screws
  • Good place to learn about malay kelantanase traditions. Just RM2 for entry per person. You get to see traditional malay weapons, royal family and local cultural traditions.
  • Its like blast back to the past.. woww extraordinary visit..
  • Should pay a visit with rm2 for entrance. You will love the history and the architecture
  • This gives a glimpse of life in the Palace in good old days. However, I find there are not detailed written description of items displayed. On the whole, because the entrance fee is cheap, It is still alright to pay a visit, afterall, there are not much things to do or see in Kota Bharu.
