This is a great historical site, which is still being used by a Maharaja who can trace his family roots to the 11th century. The grounds are beautiful, as are the common areas.

The reviews submitted by my co-reviewers must be for the resort/hotel maintained by the royal family but not for the palace as a place of attrraction. The palace is not open for public. If you want to get an entry, you have to ask the Prince for a permission. The prince is available only after 11.30 or 12.00 noon.
