National Palace- Istana Negara, Kuala Lumpur Reviews

  • I've been in Malaysia since 2015. This place is one of the most beautiful architectural building in Malaysia. Most of days during these three years I enjoy watching it especially at night. The amazing lights make a perfect mix with the yellow colour.

  • It's a House of king. Nice place to visit. You can not go inside the palace but there is huge ground area in front of main gate. From that space you can take photos of palace. You can also be able to see the security guards in their traditional uniform guarding the main gate. You can take pictures of guards. Beautifully builded palace and everything is neat and clean. It's huge structure and perfect example of beautiful architecture.

  • One of KL destination you must visit guys. It very famous. You must take memories in national palace. Especially a solder whom people take selfie with, that pose, unchanged. Stay calm pose. The atmosphere you will feel... But honestly, it rather hot at the midday, you have to bring sunglasses and hat. Don't forget to use your sunblock, wkaka. Too many bus with foreigners come visit NP as their main destination. See you there guys.

  • The national palace, Malaysia is really an architectural marvel. The palace is well maintained and protected. The visitors are only allowed to see the palace from its outsides. Entry into the palace is strictly regulated due to security reasons.

  • Excellent place. The guards have great patience and accommodative to the tourists. There should be an info related to palace history and information.
