This palace is very magnificent, which shows the prosperity of the Malaysian state. The existence of the king, called Yang Dipertuan Agong, can be seen from the position of the flag. If the flag is at the top of the pole, it means that the king is in the palace. However, visitors can only see everything from behind the fence.

It's a 5 minute visit, as you can only peer through the rails. It's only worth making the trip if it is easy for you to do so - either car or taxi. Saw an open-top tour bus pull in - another option.

Our private tour arrived at the Royal Palace at a time when there were only a few visitors present. 30 seconds after we departed the van, activity started in the entryway and a procession escorting the King pulled in. Got some great pictures. This is a quick stop to see the outside of a beautiful Mosque-Like palace. There are no tours, so it is an outside photo stop only, unless the King comes riding in. Interesting political system there. The King serves for 5 years, with the office rotating between the Sultan's of the seven districts in Malaysia. The prior King resigned after one year (guide did not give us a reason), and the current King has been in office a year or two.

Quite a nice looking building but only need about 15 minutes as you cannot enter the grounds. Ideal to fill in your day.

It was just an ok experience not a highlight of visiting Kuala Lumpur for me. The most exciting part was when the guards changed out the horses. But interesting fact I learned is that Malaysia changed Kings every 4 years by each state.
