This former home of Malaysia’s Yang di-PertuanAgong (Supreme King) has now been converted into a Royal Museum. Most of the 11-hecatre grounds and the building itself are worth visiting, though you’re only allowed access to about two floors. It has a nice history. Built as the home of a wealthy Chinese miner in 1928, it became a Japanese Officer’s mess during WWII. In 1957, the state acquired it and it became a royal palace. The rooms are lavishly made, but the actual furnishings aren’t so grand. They do have an interesting mix of European and Malaysian tastes. It’s thought that the nicer furniture has been taken away to the new palace. Check out the dentists room. Want to spend a couple of days in this beautiful city?
