  • Raj Mahal Palace is located on the territory of the Fort, known for murals, which depict the Vishnu, dancers and musicians, scenes of court life and hunting. Built in the year 1591 in Indo-Saracen style. Once he was white. The Palace consists of two parts-palaces and the female half of the Maharaja. Several tiers with multiple Windows, arches, balconies. Each half of the Palace has a rectangular courtyard. You can climb to the top from there enjoys beautiful views of the city. Only rate their ability as steps are not very comfortable, and some very cool.

  • One of the most impressive palaces I have ever seen. Quite big and open to go till the top of palace.
  • Great palace. It has some great colored wall paintings of that era.
  • Really nice place. And the best view on the river
  • Great monument.
  • Maybe it's not so good looking as it's neiberhood -Jahangir Mahal. But you shouldn't omit this place.
