I was there for a meeting at their banquet followed by dinner. The palace and banquet hall was very impressive. High ceilings with chandeliers, very well maintained. Dinner was also very good. Good variety and taste.

LVP is a must visit for anybody coming to Vadodara. Its set in the heart of the city and offers a beautiful view. Well-maintained till date since the royal family still resides in the premises. Also, you can go around the palace to see the beautiful golf course and cricket ground where you can spot peacocks.

Unique palace representing Hindu, Sikh, Muslim & Christian Architecture. This palace has museums, cricket ground, Golf course, Auditorium, open zoo and many more attractions. Two new roads have been constructed on two sides of the palace. One can enjoy the scenic beauty of the palace from inside the boundary and also from from these roads. One must visit this Palace.

The palace stands tall in the heart of the city, still retains its glory. The palace used to house the king of Vadodara(then Baroda). The palace is now converted into a convention and banquet place better known as LVP( Laxmi Vilas Palace).

This place is as royal as it gets. It has become a nice place to host a wedding. The palace is decorated with nice lights and flowers which is the backdrop. Even if not for a wedding its a nice place to see.
