What travelers say:

The Chinese name is Kota Jiayang Museum, and I have done a lot of homework seriously: According to historical records, the 4.84 hectare area where this state museum is located was once given to Syed Salim bin Syed Muhammad al-Jafri, the younger brother and prime minister of Raja Syed Alwi. manor. At the end of the 19th century, Syed Salim built a mansion on the fief and moved in with his family. It was not until the signing of the Bangkok Treaty in 1909 that the land was sold to the state government. Since then, the palace has become the official residence of the British advisers to the state government. Before the outbreak of World War II in 1941, the first British adviser Meadow Frost and his successors lived here; from 1941 to 1943, the mansion was occupied by the Japanese military, and from 1943 to 1945 it was used by the Thai military government. After Malaysia became independent, the governor of Perlis moved in. In the early 1980s, after Governor Dato'' Jaafar Hassan moved out, it became a well-known hotel. In 1991, the palace was demolished and the current state museum was built, with the same structure as the old house. The Kompleks Warisan Negeri is also in the museum.
