  • I came to the new Royal Palace. From the heart of Istana Negara National Palace on the outskirts of 4-5 km West. Former Royal Palace is located almost in the center of town, are now Museum. Is a new Palace Guard and picture. You live in five States of Malaysia Sultan Palace, the King comes around once in 45 years. There the dome of Islamic buildings, but unlike the Blue Mosque, it was golden.

And jousting horsemen and guards on both sides of the gate, are guarding. Does not even move the photo is okay, but the expression does not change course.

  • I would not waste time over this but since it was part of our city tour visited this place. You cant enter the palace grounds and will end up watching the gates and guards in place. When we were there...  more »

  • “Great palace, amazing!” Great place, amazing palace, huge territory! Don't know what they really need so large space for living but they are royalties... You can see it from outside the gates only. Beautiful. You must go there but after 4pm it is prohibited for visitors. You can use HOHO buses as well.
  • A big plaza that you can easily spend half day here
  • Really need so large space for living, You are only allowed to look from outside the gate, the gate is huge and beautiful. You can have photos with the guards...Happy vacation friends Tq:)
  • Nice place but can only see from the outside
