“National Palace”
Reviewed May 15, 2013

Istana Negara is the national Palace which is so nicely built on a very large piece of land maybe several acres. We had a wonderful time here looking around and taking pictures. The guards were really friendly.The landscape is so beautiful and the building stands out among the greenery.This is the place to stand and take some fresh breath of air. We greatly appreciated that this place was open to the public and people should not miss this opportunity .

“king's palace Kualalumpur”
Reviewed May 8, 2013

King's Palace Kualalumpur is an impressive building but the old palace which I had seen during my previous visit was more majestic and impressive There are 9 sultanates in Malaysia and one from each state becomes King in rotation Thus the present King who is 88 years old has become King for the second tenure after 45 yeas and He is the only King to get the chance for second time He has married again recently and the Queen is 44 years old.a flag at the top of the palace dome flutters when the King is in the palace and the fluttering flag informed us that King was presnt in the palace.but nobody is allowed to enter the palace At the main imposing main entrance,guards in red uniform on horse back are present in Buckingham Palace style and you cannot resist the temptation of taking a photograph with the guards.Besides this, there is nothing much to see.

“I am "somebody". That's why I get in this place easily”
Reviewed May 2, 2013

Royal Place is not just for a Royal Family-related like me. Plus, it's not like everyone are invited. only for/with some occasion or business. you can snap photos in the park

“Awesome to see”
Reviewed May 2, 2013

You can't go in the Palace but on a tour bus, you get to walk up to the gates and peek inside. Great surrounding gardens. Beautiful place.
