Pagaruyung Palace is a very large traditional house for King and his family. A nice place to visit to explore for your cultural insight.
People told us that the palace is not the original anymore because it was burn a few years ago. But the restoration was quite good that visitors can still see the beauty of the Pagaruyung Palace. Unfortunately we were there when it was fasting month (Ramadan). We cannot enter the palace, because it was locked. But looking around the palace... More
I was amuse with the building. And the view is very amazing... Although we cannot enter the palace but the exterior is great and elegan. Too bad there is no guide to tell us the story of the palace and the purpose of each and every landmarks there. And not much of trashcan so the cleanliness is a bit sad..
the palace is still under restoration when i was there in june 2013 but the undertaker was kind enough to take us to the tour of the palace. The intricate emboidery and the tradiational setting is very beautiful.

When I visited the palace, it must have been the school holidays... school children in their uniform and their teachers were scattered all over the place! There was a sense of carnival, the kids were running here and there, the adults seated on mats eating takeaway lunch. Although one could not enter the palace yet at that time, it was... More
Good environment, nice and well maintenanced set of uniquely shaped building. Unlucky for me i wasnt allowed to enter due to some renovation. Maybe next trip
