Photographer's Note

The King of Malaysia is moved into the New Palace at the year 2012, and the old palace is now open to tourists. The above photo is showing the main entrance of New Palace.

MALAYSIA NEW PALACE

According to Nik Mohamed, the new Istana Negara's architecture is a fusion of traditional Malay and Islamic architecture.

Built on 104 hectares (241.3 acres) of land, the main structure of the Istana Negara faces the direction of Makkah and is divided into different levels and wings based on the royal institution's functions.

The main floor is divided into the Official Wing and the Royal Wing. The lower floor houses the administrative office, kitchen, store and other support areas.

Unlike the old palace, which only had two domes, the new one boasts 22 domes with the main one reaching 60 meters high, a reflection of the supremacy of the Agong and Raja Permaisuri Agong within the nation and in society.
