The only thing that remains of the 16th century Royal Palace is Sultan Park. Sultan Park is Public Park that stands as a testimony to the Palace’s grandiose. The Royal Palace was razed to the ground except for one three storey wing. There is a massive iron gate at the entrance that speaks of its former glory. Water Lilies and serene ponds welcome you to this green oasis. A welcome change from the chaos of the city, if you listen carefully, you could actually hear birdsongs at this place. The remnant wing of the palace has been converted to the National Museum which houses artefacts of Maldivian culture, including coins, royal antiques, furniture, coins, embellishments and armaments. A visit to this museum is a must for history lovers.
