Located closer to Kakkabe, this palace is less visited well-maintained structure. A protected monument this, it's location is intriguing. Visitors with a curious mind to check some less known structures, will like to explore this palace.

Built in 18th century, still being nicely maintained. Was just adjacent to our resort Misty Woods. Caretaker is also the guide. Took us 25 minutes for the tour, since family was intrigued & had a lot of queries! Worth the visit.
