139 Reviews
Kuala Lumpur

"May 3, 2013. This is the residence of the highest head of Malaysia, which was completed and opened in 2011, called the "new palace".

Of course, it is not open to visitors, and people can only "reach" the observation, through the entrance gate barrier gap with a camera to pat the palace vision, and is the door guards and photographs."
