  • We literally drove to the middle of nowhere to see the beautiful palace. It was very cold outside, but a very nice caretaker and tour guide let us right in. Unfortunately, I did not get his name. He w...  more »

  • The ride from the entrance to the palace is nice on newly paved road. The place is being renovated but very fun to walk around area and see the rooms in palace and visit gift shop on the way out
  • I’ve visited on several occasions, and it remains very interesting. While progress has been slow, it’s apparent that restoration is being done. While it isn’t visually perfect, the Palace is incredibly beautiful and stands out in stark contrast to the surrounding countryside. I highly recommend a visit to the Palace and the rest of the property. Photographs are a must. During warmer weather the rose gardens are breathtaking.
  • It is simply beautiful. Peacocks and cats roam the grounds. The people are so nice.
  • Very interesting place and definitely unexpected in West Virginia. The palace has some beautiful features with many kinds of marble and colored glasses. You must take your shoes off to do the tour and "donate." There's peacocks wondering around the grounds. You must also take your shoes off in the temple.
  • Although under renovation the Palace is a diamond in the hills of WV. A 20min drive off the highway down a winding country road gets you to this unique place. The tour guides were great, answering all our questions, and after the 25min tour we wandered the grounds and had a smoothie. There was also a restaurant in the complex and lots too see beyond the palace.
