It's a quite good palace however it's not well maintained. From outside it looks good and with rainy season (when I visited it) it was awesome, however from inside it's not upto the standards. Perhaps a renovation will make it more appealing

Neglected and ill maintained property. Termites were having a field day. Vast and lovely property on a hill station over looking the hills and ghats but no proper sign board or entrance to this site.

Just a Palace. If you want to dig our past and history, that's the best place. But if you aren't interested, then no use of even visiting.

It is a good but neglected property. They don't allow to see the interior but the outside looks majestic and historic. Too bad there's no one to take care of it now!

This is a nice place. Not a very old palace but still not to be missed. The backyard of this palace exhibits a wide space and a naturally beautiful landscapes. You can see a little village, a narrow road and greenery right behind the palace.
