The windows are arched and are covered by colorful stained glass that paints the inner rooms in color lights.   In the other hand, the North Face of the Royal Palace has an style more influenced by western style so it has more stylized features, as it rises in high, pointy towers.   Both sides of the Palace look like if they had nothing in common, so people tend to mistake them with two completely different and independient buildings.
