The palace is located in the center of Agrabah, and can be seen from anywhere in the town. The palace itself is surrounded by high walls, with a main gate granting entrance. A small area on the wall is outfitted for the Sultan to make speeches and announcements to the people. When Jafar assumes control of Agrabah for a while, he orders the Genie to move the Palace to a high mountain near the city.
The Palace itself is mostly white in color, with Golden domed roofs. There are multiple towers of varying sizes. Inside, there are various rooms that are used by the Sultan and his family. Outside, in the area between the walls and the building itself is a large garden, as well as a fountain.

In Aladdin media
The palace serves as a major setting in all Aladdin films as well as the TV series. In Aladdin, Jasmine considers the palace to be something of a prison, as she at first tires of her life as a princess. Meanwhile, Aladdin dreams of living there. Later in the film, Jafar has the Genie move the palace to a nearby mountain overlooking the city (as he wanted to "rule on high"), though it is restored to its original location at the end of the film. The Return of Jafar shows that Aladdin now lives in the palace. In Aladdin and the King of Thieves, the palace serves as the site of Aladdin and Jasmine's wedding
- In the Kingdom Hearts series, the Palace can be seen from Aladdin's house and the Main Plaza in Agrabah. However Sora doesn't go beyond the front gate and never meets the Sultan in person.
- In the series, it is shown that guided tours of the Palace are available.
