“Beautifully reconstructed”
Reviewed November 23, 2012

A fabulous building with fantastic photo opportunities with the way the light reflects inside the Palace and also of the fantastically manicured gardens. A small oasis of peace away from the bussle of the river and thr Portuguese square, well wortha stop over the midday heat to shelter in the building and stroll through the grounds. Often overlooked on tours so worth looking out for

“A picturesque building”
Reviewed November 20, 2012

Building was perfect for pictures and photos from certain angles. Nice and cool to walk inside viewing the exhibits on the two floors.

“interesting”
Reviewed October 15, 2012

Great look at local building before the Europeans took over. Worth the stop and the entrance fee. We went as part of a richshaw tour.

They build it the old way, supposed to be nailess. and have nice antiques. The lacking part is the lighting systems.

“Amazing Architecture”
Reviewed September 25, 2012

This is Malacca Sultanate Palace replica. The design are based on what had stated in Melaka History book. Believe it or not, this Palace are not using any nail. Good place to know and learn about history of Melaka Sultanate.
