  • 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..
