Description
The Rova of Antananarivo, is a royal palace complex in Antananarivo, former home of the monarchs of Madagascar. Seven monuments originally occupied the site including the Manjakamiadana ("Queen's Palace" and main structure), Tranovola, Manampisoa, Besakana , Mahitsielafanjaka, a Protestant temple and royal tombs. Queen Ranavalona I commissioned the construction of the Manjakamiadana, which was completed in 1839 by Jean Laborde. The original structure was made of wood but was later given its characteristic silhouette in 1869 when Queen Ranavalona II commissioned Scottish architect James Cameron to encase the palace in stone. Along with other structures of the Rova, the Manjakamiadana burned in the fire of November 6, 1995. not me who made this beautiful object #africa #cbastien_rajaona #fort #Madagascar #oceania #palace #queen #roof_Antananarivo #rova #royal
