Instana Negara is known as National Palace in Kuala Lumpur. Considered as the favourite tourist spot where they welcome you with arch guards. Istana Negara was reconstructed by architect from Jabatan Kerja Raya (JKR) Malaysia and it took 4 months to complete the renovations that however did not affect the main structure of the building. In a way, it is like a melange of historical and contemporary Malaysia.

This impressive palace of white and gold is certainly worth seeing. This very pretty building is a rather underrated but very interesting sight in Kuala Lumpur.

  • The palace itself was magnificent. Very beautiful. Gave it three stars however because as a tourist location to visit there isn't much to do besides take a couple pics and go to the next place.

  • One of the iconic and must to stop by for the first time visit tourist.. you only can access and walk until the main gate of the palace.. we cannot go inside but we can take photo with the iconic guard with his horse. Going in the morning is the best option while around 10.00 am already so hot and shiny

  • Good place to know the history of Malaysia. It's the greatest building of Malaysian royal/head of state authorities. Held by each of 13 states under the federation one by one, this is an iconic throne of the history of Malaysia as one of the biggest country in Southeast Asia.

  • It's the king's palace in Malaysia. They put the yellow flag up when king is there in the palace but when he is out of station, the flag is put down. There are two guards in the main entrance with horses. The beauty of the palace is that it is maintained very nicely. The architecture is like Mogaliya but still the colour and natural beauty adds its beauty. It has gombuj structure in the main palace. But no tourist is allowed to enter the palace.

  • Awesome place to be. Beautiful caves almost 400 million years old. If you are in KUL then its must b an imp n in your list of sightseeing.
