this place actually doesn't have many to-do activities, but you still can take so many pictures as you can, but please always keep on a good behave here because this place is one of the oldest heritage in west borneo.

Its tipically malay palace with dominanly yellow paint all over the wall. The door locked so visitor can not see what is inside. Free entry. And people at the neighbourhood is friendly too. Masjid jami' is only 150m away from this palace

Historical places such as muzuem and well kept by the sultan descent family. Try to get local guide to visit here and ask for permission before taking any photo.

The place has its historic value and the exodus of the yemeni people and administration in Pontianak and its vicinity. The Sultan is still in place to safeguard the sultanate. But what a pity its run down.

I got goosebumps while writing this, never in my life i have seen such glorified place becomes something so old, dirty and poorly preserved. When we came to the Keraton,... More

A small palace (just a few rooms) but full of atmosphere. Those who suggest that it is grubby and run down miss the point which is that it looks just as it did when the Sultan and his family packed and left. Smarten it up and you lose the link with the moth eaten past and its faded glory. Whilst... More
