Located at the hill and passed by a Hop-On-Hop-Off tourist bus route. I think you can't go inside but in front of the place is very nice to take picture.

beautiful and unique architecture and lanscape.. u get to see the guard standing still infront of the main gate to guard the area just like in the buckingham palace, london!

Came here after visiting the old palace. Very different in the sense that although very nice, it lacked the atmosphere the old Istana has. Probably because it's still so new and things haven't established yet. I do wish they'd kept the royal gold colour scheme instead of the new yellow

If you go to the old Istana, there is a model display of the new palace where you actually get to see more of the layout. The new palace doesn't allow entry for security reasons as it's the official residential place of the current king.

We visited this place as well as the old istana negara and the exhibition there. There was an interesting display of royal jewellry, thrones and portraits. Tickets were very reasonably priced and we enjoyed the experiance.

Not over the top and nice to see that you can take photos with the guards on their horse or lone guard. Close to Buks Palace re the guards but difficult to replicate.
