You can only reach the gate of the palace. It's not open for public. The palace is located is still very far from the gate so you can barely see the building. We were lucky because we were there just in time for the change...More

Not easy to access by walk but definitely worth the visit for the pretty garden and the very interesting exhibition on the king’s coronation. Went with my 5yo daughter and she loved it too.

Good place to drop by for sightseeing and taking photo. You can take a photo with the guards. According to the staff there, the palace is only open to public during the open house for 'Hari Raya'

You cannot go inside but are free to walk around and take photos near the main entrance with the guards and horses. It is the home of the reigning King of Malaysia.
