Malacca Sultanate Palace is an exquisite piece of Malay architecture
and is a replica of the original 15th century palace of Malacca's
extinct Sultanate. The palace is built based on sketches found in
the ancient Sejarah Melayu (Malay Annals). This wooden replica of
the Sultan's palace houses the Malacca Cultural Museum.
Facing the palace is the Historic City Memorial Garden. An intriguing
monument to commemorate the declaration of Malacca as a Historic
City is the showpiece of this garden. The monument is topped with
a replica of a Malay royal headress, a symbol of Malaysians' allegiance
to the throne.
