The Istana Raja Muda in the 1920's.

The Istana Raja Muda is located on Jalan Syed Abu Bakar in Teluk Intan. The istana was built in the early 1920s by Almarhum Sultan Iskandar Shah. Almarhum Raja Muda Abdul Aziz ibni Raja Muda Musa was the first Raja Muda to occupy the istana.

However, following the death of DYTM Raja Muda Ahmed Siffuddin ibni Almarhum Sultan Iskandar in 1987, the Istana Raja Muda was left unoccupied. The istana since has been in a deplorable state.
