"Historic Building made out of Wood"
0

This 400-years old palace is believed to be the largest wooden palace in Asia. The intricate woodwork and elegant murals in this 15-buildings complex speak volumes about the skills of the artisans of the yesteryears. The palace is a brilliant representation of the cultural richness of "God's Own Country".
