"Istana Negara" Royal Palace - Istana Negara Tip by yen_2

by yen_2

Malaysia has 9 Sultans and 1 of them will be the King for 5 years. If he would like to be a King again then he will wait for another 45 years. Istana Negara is the official residence of the Yang Di-Pertuan Agong (The King), located on a hillock at Jalan Istana. The palace is surrounded by green lawns, ponds and trees. On ceremonial occasions, the palace and its grounds are gaily lit-up.

Hmm..I was trying to sneak out looking for a nice ops but hey, its a guarded residence and even the roof you can't see only those guards. when we we're there it was in time for the visit of the French Prime Minister Chirac, so there are lot's of guards outside..maybe because they're waiting for the visit?

Address: Jalan Istana, Kuala Lumpur
Directions: Located on a hill of Bukit Petaling overlooking the Klang River, along Jalan Syed Putra.
