This is a very interesting must see. The entrance fee is 5 rupees. It helps to have a guide. Look for the fish in the pond outside which you can feed.

Big wooden elephant welcomes you to the palace. The architecture is superb. The palace is very cold from inside. Each and every room has some story to say. The artefacts are preserved well.
