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 imagine that this place was glorious and very beautiful before the Sultan and his family left, now it just a remains of what was left in the old days. 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
