HomeBlogs The New Palace While the original palace of the Tidore Sultanate
has long since disappeared, recent rivalry with Ternate has prompted
the construction of a new one in the original location. It looks like a copycat version of the Ternatese palace, except that it sports a blue roof. During my last visit, the construction work seemed to have been halted, and the half-ready building was inhabited by stray dogs. It remains to be seen what becomes of it after all.
