Malacca Sultanate Palace is situated next to the A Famosa Fort and is a reconstruction of the original palace which existed here in the time of the Sultanate in the 15th century. Good architectural details in the wooden structure and interesting to walk around.

Beautifully kept and well described for walking visitors. Some interesting artefacts outside the gates share story of independence and critical milestones.

This is the place to go for a bit of history. The building is architecturally spectacular and is a well preserved park of Malacca history. The gardens are also a beautiful place to spend time in during a humid day here.

Not much to do. Its a very small palace. There is nothing much to explore. Just a place which you can cover for half an hour. Kids may like it

Inside this big house-on-stilts (which is a "replica palace" of the one lived by the Malay sultans of about 600 years ago) are these 3-D figures that are life-sized & indeed "life-like" (maybe made of wax) such as groups of traders from nearby lands (Javanese...More
