The Sultan Abu Bakar Palace

The Sultan Abu Bakar Palace, which is the official residence of the present sultan, is named after the late Sultan Abu Bakar Riayatuddin Al-Muadzam Shah. Completed in 1974, the palace sits on a nicely landscaped piece of land that once was a rubber plantation. The palace is a fine example of authentic but modern Malay architecture.

Before the palace was built, the late Sultan Abu Bakar resided at Kota Beram Palace, presently the State Museum at Jalan Sultan Ahmad.
