“interesting”
Reviewed 30 April 2014

Worth a half hour visit. My son enjoyed reading some of the gory stories of justice from the past. We both enjoyed the architecture.

“Beautiful "no-nails" architecture”
Reviewed 25 April 2014 via mobile

This building has been restored using the "no-nails" method and the whole building is very beautiful. Inside, every panel dividing the walkway and the hall has intricate engravings of flowers and patterns.

Here you'll be able to visit the Sultan's bed chambers, read up on interesting stories and see old weapons, clothes, art pieces and more.

“The most impressive building in Malacca”
Reviewed 22 April 2014

The replica of the Sultanate Palace in Malacca is a beautiful building surrounded by lush gardens . It is , as far as I remember , within walking distance from the city centre and really worth visiting.
The whole city is indeed wonderful,very friendly with tourists and a unique mixture of cultures.

“Must See...”
Reviewed 3 April 2014

The palace is a replica and full of dioramas but the story of the sultan executing his friend and then being overthrown only to be rescued again by his friend who had not really been executed is charming and the house is cool and impressive...

“Fun place to visit in Melaka”
Reviewed 10 March 2014

Nice to visit just to see what these wooden palaces on stilts were like. Inside there are a bunch of strange looking models to represent the courts / characters of the time - quite interesting to see (although some of the statues are really weird and not sure what they're doing). My favourite part, though, was the display of intricately carved wooden models of palaces / houses - very beautiful.
