This is the seat and official residence of the Asantehene.
Its large courtyard holds statues of past great Kings and Queens of the Ashanti Kingdom. Located on the Antoa rd just a kilometer from the National museum, this palace was built in 1926 on the return from exile of the Asantehene nana Prempeh 1. This palace remains in use today and houses a small but interesting history museum. Best time to visit is during the Adae festival, which occurs every sixth Sunday when the Asantrhrne receives homage from his subjects and subservient chiefs.
