The King's Palace

Pretty much wrecked in the various wars of the last 30 years, the building in the distance was once a magnificent palace. Now there's not even enough left to be restored, even if they wanted to.

You're probably right that nobody's going to restore this palace.

But I can't resist pointing out that some of the Russian royal palaces, such as Tsarkoe Selo and Peterhof outside St. Petersburg, looked just as bad when Hitler's troops were finished with them. After decades of restoration, they look better today than they did in the seventeenth century.

So there's still hope for Darul Aman Palace. Where there's a will, there's a way.

Hey, thanks, anonymous. I only had the words of my traveling companions to rely on. Now I know "Darul Aman." Learned something new today.
