The architecture of the palace is influenced by European style and is a blend of styles belonging to different periods. The gates of this impressive palace were cast in England and they are replica of Buckingham Palace’s gates. The interiors spell quality in every inch. Prehistoric artifacts, paintings and sculptures of the past and present are seen here.

The palace is grand. Very well maintained. I just love the beauty here. It reminds me of the Indore Holkar era. The chairs, curtains, Italian floors, shine all the places, gardens outside. Everything is so nice here.

The palace talks everything about Holkar family. You can see beautiful furnitures and rooms inside the palace. There is no opportunity of carrying a mobile phone inside the palace for clikcing a photograph. If you are a history lover, you should visit once.
