“A historical place to see in Vadodara”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 April 2012

This is a marvelous architecture built by the ruler of this state where all the faiths have been taken into care in the construction and it is being maintained so well that it's worth a visit. It has a museum to be viewed as well. Anyone in my company who visited is from UK wanted to see it so I got lucky to see it more than once.

“Hallmark of Vadodara”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 March 2012

The Palace of King Sayajirao Gaekwad and his ancestors which is a real pride of Vadodara. One should visit Palace, Museum and Kirti Mandir in Vadodara to know about the glory of King Sayaji Rao Gaekwad.
