Istana Negara Kuala Lumpur

Hotels near Istana Negara Kuala Lumpur, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia .

One of the most requested sights to see in Kuala Lumpur is the Istana Negara Kuala Lumpur. The Istnaa Negara or “National Palace” is known as the official home of Yang di-Pertuan Agong (king) of Malaysia. The place is on a sprawling 28 acre or 110,000 square meter site, and is located at the slope of Bukit Petaling that overlooks the Klang River, along Jalan Syed Putra. Although this is the main residence, another royal residence of the King is at the Istana Melawati which is located in Putrajaya.

The residence used to be a double-storey mansion that was built by ChanWing, a local Chinese millionaire in 1928. During the time of the Japanese occupation (1942-1945) the mansion was used as for the Japanese officer’s mess. After the occupation, the building was then bought by the Selangor State government, so it became the palace of the Sultan of Selangor until 1957. The Federal Government then bought the place in 1957, and converted the place to its current state today, as the home of the Yang di-Pertuan Agong of Malaysia.
