The Maruekhathaiyawan Palace (also known as the Palace of Love & Hope) was built entirely from teak wood and is beautifully styled, making its architecture unique when compared to other palaces on the island. The overall design was done by the King himself and it was styled to be of utmost comfort for him and other members of the royal family. They came here during the summer time, until his death in 1925.
The Kings Room
The king’s personal quarters consisted of a bedroom, bathroom, dressing room, dining room and a study. The king was quite a poet and it was said that he wrote a lot of poetry in his study that overlooked the sea.
The Sewakamart section
This section was used for official meetings, events and functions. After the death of the king in 1925, the palace was deserted, but today it has been fully restored and can be viewed by the public. It will give you an insight to how the royal family lived over a century ago.
