Maimoon Palace

Maimoon Palace or Maimun Palace is an istana (royal palace) of the Sultanate of Deli and a well-known landmark in Medan, the capital city of Northern Sumatra, Indonesia. Today, it serves as a museum.

Built by Sultan Ma’mun Al Rashid Perkasa Alamyah in the years 1887–1891, the palace was designed by the Dutch architect Theodoor van Erp and covers 2,772 m² with a total of 30 rooms. The Palace has become a popular tourist destination in the city, not solely because of its historical heritage status but also because of its unique interior design, combining elements of Malay cultural heritage, Islamic and Indian architecture, and Spanish and Italian furniture and fittings.
