a majestic palace one must see. we never feel that the palace is more than 100 years old. It is maintained so well and the exhibits are marvelous. the vintage car museum is also wonderful.

The palace is great to view from outside. Only a few rooms are accessible unless you check in the hotel that takes up the lions share of this property. The vintage car collection is the highlight.

You can see it from outside only. 5 rooms in the entire palace is opened for public. Vintage cars on display are the only attraction here.

Just on the way to other places drop in for half hour. Know some indulgences of royalty and the good work they did. The view from the top, outside the bhavan is worth the trip upto the place.

At Rs. 30 per head it is definitely worth to take a stroll inside. A guide may not be necessary as most of the displays have enough information mentioned next to it.

Although the history of the artefacts is mentioned in most places but taking a guide transistors the experience. We paid him Rs 100 and were really mesmerised by the Raja's watches & crockery collection as well as the 3 in 1 paintings.
