We visited this place but not much info on history that you can get here. The buliding is a 3 storey building , There are ladies wearing mascots and requested monies after taking photo with them. Can try the traditional Minang Costume here at Rupiah 30K per person

For people who visit Padang & Bukittinggi, this Palace is a "must" stop location. It has been an icon for tourism here. It is indeed Majestic looking and i love the wood work of the Palace. Beautifully carved pillars and woven walls makes the history of this Palace more alive. Unfortunately not enough information provided in the Palace for an example, statues adorning beautiful traditional wears (but worn out) were put in one corner with no information plat or what so ever. The Palace also are not well lit. It was dark and gloomy and not much to do besides trying the traditional wears and taking picture in it (chargeable). Wish more information narative plat will be provided in the future for visitors to understand this Palace's history more.

This Minangkabau palace is a replica of the original palace. The original palace is called istano silindung bulan. Lotsa photos to be taken here if you’re into architecture.

This place is HUGE. So many perfect, nice spots to take pictures. You can really learn the culture here as they allow you to try wear the Minangkabau cultural clothes for women. At the window is where the famous spot for pictures. The walls, ceilings were decorated with amazing, beautiful decorations where there’s a meaning behind it. Heads up! There’s quite a lot of stairs inside where you can go up to 2 levels to pose for pictures!
