Royal Palace - Istana Negara Tips (36)

No entry!

As the title suggests, the Palace grounds is off limits to tourists. We can hardly see the palace from outside the gate, so most tourists would rather take photo with the palace guards outside the gate. I think those guards have one photograph too much!

Royal Palace

We drove past the palace and I asked Lawrence our tour guide to stop so that I could take a photo and maybe go for a quick cuppa tea with the King, but they would not let me past the gate. The guard had a rather stern look on his face - I think they have a special school for royal guards - which made me decide not too look for trouble with this okie.

Istana Negara

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?

The Royal Palace

One doesn't get further than the entrance gates but it is part of the ½ day trip and well worth seeing if in the vicinity.
