Istana Maziah (Maziah Palace) is located at the foot of Bukit Puteri in the heart of KT town. It was build in 1897 during the reign of Sultan Zainal Abidin II to replace the earlier palace – Istana Hijau (Green Palace) – which was destroyed by fire. Architecturally, this brown color 2 storeys building is a blend of modern and traditional architecture with its tall shuttered windows that resembles a French chateau.
The palace is a symbol for the Terengganu State Sultanate and mainly used today as the venue for offical functions, such as royal birthdays, weddings, conferment of titles and receptions for local and foreign dignitaries. The palace will also be normally opened to the public during the Hari Raya festival, when the Sultan will have an audinece with the peoples of Terengganu.
