A beautiful piece of history of the erstwhile state of Vadodara. The Palace is divided into residential areas and half of it as a museum. A real treat to visit.

Visit LVP to experience the grandeur of the great Gaekwad Family who still stay in the place. Surrounded by a pristine 10 hole Golf course, the surroundings are nice and lush green. Visit the palace Museum to see the great paintings of Raja Ravi Verma.
