Rajwada to Indore is like Shanivar wada to Pune, Jaivilas Palace to Gwalior, Red Fort to Delhi, Laxmi Vilas Palace to Vadodra.

It is a palace built by Holkars (Royals of Indore) in 1766AD. The structure is 7 stories and the area is center of Indore city. Once it was the power center of Indore, now it is commercial center and commercial heart of Indore city. Loads and loads of shops, thousands of visitors every day, chaotic traffic, wholesale markets and plenty of eating joints. This is modern day Rajwada. Rajwada is located about 1.5 Kilometers north west of Indore railway station and Main bus stand. Plenty of public transport available from all corners of the city to this place.

It houses a small museum and a government treasury inside it. The structure was badly damaged due to a fire accident during 1984 and now there is nothing to see inside. But outside, it is an imposing structure and it is indeed a trademark signature of Indore, which is largest city and commercial capital of MP.

1. Heart of the city and heart of all commercial activities
2. Imposing Maratha style architecture
3. Main shopping district of Indore
4. Lot of eateries and good food availability
5. Well connected by public transport

1. Very crowded as its a shopping district
2. Nothing inside the palace to see
3. Not properly maintained structure.

Its a landmark building once must see when visiting Indore.

Rajwada Evening marketi (not the building itself) in Indore is one of the places which must be visited to complete the list of mohammad ali road (Mumbai), Chandni Chowk (Delhi), street-side restaurants of vienna and so on.

It is a perfect blend of a cultural evening amalgamated with taste, spice and Indori hostmanship. Mouth watering food served in simple traditional style s seen everywhere. Corn kis, gardu, rabdi and chat are really mouth watering.

Joshi jee's dahi bada is not only a cuisine but an attraction in itself.

Overall a must visit for anyone coming to indore

Rajwada or the old palace is a remarkable mansion of Holkars which sings the glory of the stunning land, Rajwada in Indore is a must see spectacle. A beautiful blend of different architectural styles of Maratha, Mughal and French style of architecture. The entrance of the palace has a lofty archway with a giant wooden door which is covered with iron studs. The gopura- like monument is made up of wood and stone. It has a number of balconies windows and corridors. The entrance leads to a huge courtyard, which is surrounded by galleried rooms and the arcaded Ganesha hall, which was once the venue of all state and religious functions. There is a lovely Malhar temple and a huge shivlingam.. The palace portrays three stone made lower stories, wooden upper stories, well-laid garden with fountains and an artificial waterfall. The three times burnt Rajwada palace, still holds its past grandeur and grabs large number of visitors all around the year. A tantamount of the city, Rajwada palace offers a wonderful sight that one can never forget in a lifetime.
