  • Just WOW! The palace is magical with its stunning architecture. You can see many classy paintings and century-old majestic mirrors. There are some silent and nice spots to sit and have a coffee if you wish. Thanks to the authorities for maintaining this place the way it deserves. There is sufficient parking space outside if you are coming in your vehicle.
  • Beautiful. Amazing. Loved this palace. It's so well built ,you get the feel of royal lifestyle. These were rich kings who lived a lavish life. Recommend you to hire a guide. Sadly there is no mention of architects n people who laboured to built this beautiful palace. (Well it's like that with all the monuments in India)
