MALAYSIA ~ Old Royal Palace - Kuala Lumpur ~

... Beautiful castle view situated at a specially laid out park, which features a great variety of exotic trees and flowers... it is considered to be one of the capital’s most remarkable sights... a place steeped in history and impressive architecture... Thanks once more Jobbo!! ✿◕ ‿ ◕✿

The Royal Museum (built in 1928)  is located in the old National Palace, or Istana Negara which, from 1957 until 2011, was the official residence of the King and Queen of Malaysia.

The old palace ceased to be the official residence on 15th November 2011 following completion of a new palace complex at Jalan Duta. The old Istana Negara has now been converted to a museum and is open to the public.

It stands on a 13 acre (50,000 m²) site, located on a commanding position on the slope of a hill of Bukit Petaling overlooking the Klang River, along Jalan Syed Putra.
