  • A hidden and much underrated gem - this 19th Century Palace is a fine example of Rajput and Mughal architecture styles. The spacious courtyard and elegant pavilions in the front are graceful. The pavilions and ghats surrounding the "Sagar" tank can look sublime. The palace houses a museum that has a fabulous collection of miniature paintings. Sadly the complex is poorly maintained, large sections of the palace are used as district government offices and are unclean and littered. The water in the Sagar tank is polluted with organic waste and plastic litter. better maintenance and cleanliness could make this a superb tourist destination.
  • Very good museum and Musa ki Chatri
  • The museum is located near Alwar Court, the museum houses a great collection. Very nominal entry fee, entrance to museum is bit narrow but inside it has enough space.
  • Alwar is a beautiful city with so much heritage.......it gives you a glimpse of the kind of life people lived during the kingship in India
  • Awesome place to know legacy of alwar's history
