Scenic Sunday: Brunei Palace


This is the Palace of the Sultan of Brunei. This is not a very good photo because I was in a moving bus of Royal Brunei airlines, and it was raining very heavily. I also wasn't very receptive to the tour guide as I had just flown about nine hours and been up almost a whole day.

Istana Nurul Iman is undisputedly the world's largest residential palace currently in use for state functions. The guide kept saying there were how many domes, and they were made of gold. Please go to the links to enjoy the grandeur of this rich Sultan.

There is another Palace of the old sultan. My photos were not very good to post on here.
