Lahane Palace


Dili, Timor-Leste (TL)
Palácio de Lahane (Lahane Palace) is a historic building in East Timor.

It was once the residence of the Portuguese governors of Portuguese Timor. The building was restored after being burned in the wave of violence by the Indonesian occupation to the independence referendum in East Timor in 1999. At that time, only the walls were left standing. In addition, the interior walls were removed to create a banquet hall for formal occasions. The palace is now a notable venue for award ceremonies.
