We visited another museum. Okay, just how many museums does this town have? Altogether there are six, and good news – they’re located very near to each other (it did save imajica’s time to show me around!) However, museums here do not allow people to take pictures inside them. This blue colored building is called Istana Batu (Rock Palace), an old palace which now serves as the Royal Museum. Royal belongings and costumes from the reign of Sultan Muhammad IV (1899-1920) are displayed here.
In front of Istana Batu is Kampung Kraftangan (Handicraft Village), place to several wooden-made buildings including this Balai Getam Guri a.k.a. Handicraft Museum. Kelantanese people make various handicrafts like Songket (handwoven fabric using gold threads), Batik painting, silverware, woodcarvings, among others. There are also Art Gallery, souvenir shops, artist booths as well as restaurants here.
