Site Plan

As there are multiple public uses planned for the site, the conservators and designers ensured that the functions and user needs were integrated into the management regime.

  • Visitor circulation and control: a well-planned visitor route has been established for guided tours. As large vehicles cannot navigate through the gates, the entry of visitors is carefully monitored and controlled as visitors enter on foot if they arrive by bus outside the Fort gate.
  • Site interpretation: being a historic monument and public domain, good interpretation enhances the visitor experience.
  • Museum: the site has been laid out as a palace site-cum-museum with interpretation panels installed in strategic locations.
  • Accommodation: the Ranvas, or Queens’ Palaces, have been converted into hotel suites and are available all year round
