  • Wow very nice place ever.....The king Bundela Rajya is here
  • Amazing must see if you are in the area. Very few tourist compared to other palaces in other Indian cities. Like a best kept secret. Had a solid tour guide show us around.
  • This is my second visit after almost 25 years. Still it's charming. Sheesh Mahal is now restaurant & accommodation suits.
  • The outer wall of this palace with huge window shaped holes gives magical touch to the palace and painting on the interior walls add more to the palace.
  • Although abandoned in 1783 this King's Palace still offers beautiful murals of social and religious themes.
