Menhyia Palace is the seat of the Ashantehene. The palace, which also serves as the official residence of arguably the most powerful Chief in the country is located at the heart of the Garden City, Kumasi. Historically, the palace was built by the British in 1874, after they ( the British) destroyed the original palace built by the Ashantes.

During the Adae Festival, the spacious courtyard is used by the Ashantehene to engage chiefs that pay homage to him. Check out the glamour and beauty of the Menhyia Palace of the Ashantehene.
