Aerial View of the Palace Grounds

This overhead view of the palace clearly shows the irregular-sized open courtyard that still make up the bulk of the main structures, as well as the large isolated quadrangle near the road that houses the royal ancestral altars. The number of trees in the sacred grove at the back of the grounds has diminished substantially from the early 1960s.
