The Royal Palace Kanker is a small but magnificent palace situated in the exceptionally beautiful and green surroundings of Kanker. Kanker is a district headquarter town, which was formerly a part of the famous Bastar district of Chhattisgarh. Located at about 140 km south of Raipur- the capital city of Chhattisgarh- Kanker is famous for its untouched forests, unique tribal villages and the last but not least the Royal Kanker Palace along with some fine century-old colonial buildings. The unique tribes of Kanker still practice age-old crafts and traditions and the region offers a different experience to its visitors.
