Sief Palace

Seif Palace was originally designated for the Emir royals. The Emir household, however, never lived in the Seif Palace and instead, the palace served as a court for celebrations. Civilians are not permitted beyond the entrance gate to the palace. One can explore the surrounding gardens and admire the palace building from the outside.

Built by Sheikh Mubarak, this palace is considered integral to Kuwait City’s progress. It is a splendid example of Islamic architecture, with original Islamic mosaic tile work. The palace complex is gargantuan, with an artificial lake, a dock for yachts and a landing field for helicopters. No photoography is permitted here.
