Melaka Sultanate Palace
Replica of a long-gone palace
What we say:
This ornate wooden building at the base of St Paul's Hill is a replica of the palace where the Sultan of Melaka lived in the 15th century before the Portuguese arrived.
The palace was built based on written descriptions in the Malay Annals texts using only materials and techniques available at the time, such as wooden pegs instead of nails.
The palace houses a Cultural Museum with traditional Malay art, weapons, costumes and musical instruments.
