Sultanate Palace

The Melaka Sultanate Palace (a replica of the Melaka Sultan's palace during the period of the Melaka Sultanate) is located at the foot of St Paul's Hill. The replica was built from information and data obtained from the Malay Annals. These historical documents had references to the construction and the architecture of palaces during the era of Sultan Mansur Syah, who ruled from 1456 to 1477.

* To preserve the architectural style of the palaces of the Melaka Sultanate era and the various ceremonial and private chambers of the palace, such as the Balairong Seri (the Main Hall cum Throne Room) and the Royal Bedchamber. The palace also exhibits artifacts pertaining to the customs and traditions of various royal households that ruled Melaka.

* To preserve for posterity the period of the Melaka Sultanate which forms an integral part of the historical heritage of the Malay race.

* To record the legendary battle of Hang Tuah and Hang Jebat during the period of the Melaka Sultanate, and the lessons that battle holds for posterity.

The replica of the palace was built in 1984 and it became the Cultural Museum. The Cultural Museum was officially opened by the Prime Minister of Malaysia on 17th July 1986. The building is made of hardwood while the roof is made of 'belian' wood. An interesting feature of the building is that no nails were used in the construction of the building, only wooden pegs.
