  • Wow is the expression that comes on your mouth after seeing this marvelous architecture. One single palace have the combination of HINDU, MUSLIM, SIKH AND CHRISTIAN architecture. Great combination of eastern and western art inside the building. Description of every little object may be obtained via audio provided by authorities.
  • Historic place in Baroda or Vadodra. One of the few Palaces in India where the royal family is still residing. Palace is beautiful with lot of stained glasses windows. There is one hour audio guided tour. The entry fees for Indians is 225 and 500 for foreign tourists.
  • Awesome place with beautiful ambience which gives you a royal feeling.. The meal was great with the royal antiques to sit and dine on. The service was excellent and it has been well managed by LVP management. Once in a lifetime.
  • An example of the luxurious extravaganza of medieval Indian Kings and their kingdoms. Having a span of more than hundreds of acres of land, this palace has a private golf course in addition to the royalties of their majesties. At an entrance fee of rupees 225, you can get an audio guide tour for an hour to explore the history and life of gaekwads of baroda. A well maintained beautiful palace.
  • Great pleasure to visit this palace. Looking onto the histories are more interesting to me. Its is a must visit palace if you are planning to visit India.
