Hotel Colbert, Antananarivo
View from my room at Hotel Colbert. Over on the hill to the left is the Rova ...
The Rova of Antananarivo is a royal palace complex in Antananarivo that was formerly the residence and political capital of the sovereigns of the Kingdom of Madagascar. The Rova occupies the highest point on Analamanga, historically the highest of Antananarivo's many hills. Merina king Andrianjaka, who ruled the central highland kingdom of Imerina from 1610 to 1630, captured Analamanga from a vazimba king and there constructed the first fortified royal structure in rosewood. Successive Merina kings continued to utilize the site as a garrison, residence or capital, often adding, expanding upon or replacing the royal structures within the compound to suit their needs. The largest of these wooden palaces, which came to be known as the Manjakamiadana ("Queen's Palace"), was constructed by Jean Laborde beginning in 1839 on the order of Queen Ranavalona I, and took on its characteristic silhouette in 1869 when Queen Ranavalona II commissioned British architect James Cameron to encase the wooden palace in stone.
The number of structures within the Rova has varied over time. Under its founder, Andrianjaka, three buildings and a dedicated tomb site were established in the early 17th century. This number had risen to approximately twenty structures during the late 18th-century reign of Andrianampoinimerina. By the late twentieth century, the Rova's structures had been reduced to one dozen and represented various architectural styles and historical periods. The largest and most prominent of these was the Manjakamiadana, also known as the Queen's Palace after Queen Ranavalona I for whom the original wooden palace was built between 1839-1841 by Frenchman Jean Laborde. The palace was later encased in stone for Queen Ranavalona II by Scotsman James Cameron, an artisan missionary of the London Missionary Society in 1861. The neighboring Tranovola, a smaller wooden palace constructed in 1819 by Louis Gros for King Radama I, is considered the first multi-story building with verandas in the central Highlands, a model that was to inspire and transform Highlands architecture by the end of the 19th century. Also on the Rova grounds were a cross-shaped wooden house built as the private residence of Queen Rasoherina (the Manampisoa), a stone Protestant temple (fiangonana) and nine royal tombs, as well as the Besakana, the Mahitsielafanjaka and other smaller wooden houses built in the traditional style reserved for the noble class (andriana) in Imerina.
A fire on the night of 6 November 1995 destroyed or damaged all the structures within the Rova complex. Although officially declared an accident, rumors persist that a politically-motivated arson may have been the cause of the fire. The Protestant temple, tombs, Besakana and Mahitsielafanjaka have since been fully restored with monies from State, private, bilateral governmental and intergovernmental sources. Restoration work to the exterior of the Manjakamiadana is slated for completion in early 2011 and interior restoration work is scheduled to continue until at least 2013. Once restoration work is completed, the Manjakamiadana will serve as a museum showcasing the royal artifacts that were saved from destruction in the fire.
King George's hotel
At first I stayed with the King George's hotel, just off of Union Square in downtown SF. I ended up in a smoking room however, so eventually (Tue evening?) I changed to the Handlery's hotel. Handlery's was slightly more expensive but totally worth every penny -- first class service, excellent standard and central location.
Oh, and a geek note: this is a digital camera photo of a google maps navigation from King George's to the Moscone center (location of the conference). How's that for mashup!
