    Just get inside the palace and get amazed with things you always read in your history classes and with things never really heard about. It was blissful! 😍

    Visited twice. Marvellous buliding with its zoo and inside the building objects worth seeing once and more. It has become a heritage building and acquired by the Archaelogical Survey of India. Now it is not open to all. When we visited it in the early seventies of the last century, there was no such restrictions as today. Still you can visit it with the permission from appropriate authority.

    One of the alluring destinations in the heart of the city. You will get to witness art and architectures of the 19th century from varied parts of the world like France, Italy, Greece and so on. The mirrors of Belgian glass is absolutely awe-inspiring...If you are keen to gather knowledge on ancient paintings and marble structures, this is the place where you should be.

    Not allowed to take photos. Must take approval for entry earlier from some tourist department, or pay to the security guard to enter. A very nice palace which not really maintained well.
