The Mulee-aage Palace is ornately carved white building across the road from the Friday Mosque. It was built in 1906 by the Sultan as a palace for his son, but the royal family were banished in 1936 so they didn’t get to live there long. The government took over and turned the palace into a Presidential Palace, seeing as it was already decked out to welcome visiting dignitaries. The president now lives in a compound at the east of the grounds.
