    Lover of monarchy and Royal residence this is for you. The building is beautiful, and gives an overview of the Malaysian Royal residences. However, we'd rather spend more time in the area, whose landscapes are breathtaking (to give you an idea, the Indochina film was shot in the corner).

    A very well-maintained gallery, i must say. A great place to learn Perak's history especially on the sultanate aspect. You can even stroll around the complex to enjoy the view.

    The once Istana turned Gallery, is a sight to awe. In layman, this is a huge mansion with noteworthy architecture. The gallery itself allows visitors to learned about the life of Sultan Azlan Shah, the family tree, the titles awarded at home and from around the world, his love for golf & hockey and many others. Consist of 3 main building, only 2 are currently opened to visitors. No photography is allowed in the building though. Air-conditioned. Very well maintained. The staff are friendly. Admission fees and visiting hours at the time of posting are in the picture below. Parkings are made available right in front of the entrance. Reminds me of Gallery Perdana in Langkawi.

    The architecture of the building is very nice and the environment and facilities are very well managed. Perfect place to learn about the former ruler of Perak; Sultan Azlan Shah.
