It was the seat of the last king of Srilanka. You can visit it while visiting the sacred tooth temple as they located in the same complex. For SAARC nationals entry fee is lower than other foreigners.

The Royal Palace, or what remains of it, can be accessed from the temple of the tooth relic. There is not much to do but it is worth the visit

In contrast to the temple and museum, the old palace seemed rather mundane. However there is a lot of ancient history here and I recommend reading up on it before you visit. Pity that it is so neglected...

Another spot of historical significance and interests. Tourists can use guides to take them around or wonder around admiring this Palace building now fairly well restored

Just adjacent to the Temple is the Palace of the last ruler. Entire palace is not opened to public but whatever you get to see is fascinating. Biggest attraction in the town.

The Palace buildings apparently now house a Museum & are not accessible at present. The large adjacent wooden structure is the Kings Audience Hall and was initially built without nails - just interlocking joints. An incredible surviving example of old workmanship.
