“Guests remove their shoes before entering Maimoon Palace, or ‘Istana Maimun,’ a 19th-century palace in Medan, North Sumatra. The palace was built by Sultan Makmun Al Rasyid, the Sultan of Deli, between 1887 and 1891.¬†Visitors can tour the palace rooms, look at artifacts, and listen to music by a traditional Malay band.”
