Visited this famous Palace and home of the Royal Scindia family. The architecture and interiors are European in its decor and one can see the contrast of this fabulous palace and the poor Gwalior state they ruled upon. Advisable to tae a guide as otherwise...More

If you have seen the palaces of Rajasthan, you would not have high expectations from another palace. However this palace museum has some artecrafts which are unique. Do not miss the 3.8Tonne chandeliers and the silver train for serving drinks and food. These two things...More

It is a palace built in 1270771 sq.ft. Area a true picture of livin legacy. One must see the pair of chandeliers hung in 50 ft tall Durbar Hall. Management should think about providing a Buggy ride to the guests from parking to palace.

A poor imitation of European palaces made by a ruler who looked up to his Colonial masters and probably wanted to be European instead of the Europeans. The palace is a mish mash collection of items brought from overseas probably paid for by his poor...More
