“Good! but not clean!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 July 2012

too much checking! instead of taking away cameras at security checks! they should take away tobacco n all from them too! u can find red spit everywhere! But good for a sightseeing place!

“Must See”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 July 2012

Just a treat for the eyes- wall paintings, oil paintings, collection of gifts, the grandeur of the palace- just amazing and with seeing.

“Interesting palace”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 July 2012

Amazing place to visit for those who have interest in history. Though the palace is not as rich as some palaces in gwalior or Rajasthan. But this has its own beauty.

“Nice if you have not visited European Palaces.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 July 2012

The outside of this palace is beautiful, it has been well preserved and the gardens are worth wandering in.
Inside the palace you see the excesses of the Maharajahs, unfortunately most of the origin of the interior is from other countries and you do not really get to see any purely Indian influence.
Word of advice, if you wish to enter the palace you must leave your cameras and cell phones at a desk and you must leave your shoes at another desk about 50 meters from the camera desk. be careful when you go to pick up your shoes / camera / phone as they expect you to give them a tip before they hand your goods back to you.
If you do visit, go in the late afternoon about 4 then you can catch the sound and light show, which is supposed to be good although we never saw it, but remember you have to leave before the sound and light show and then pay another admission fee to enter the grounds to see the show

“Simply Marvelous!!! Try the view of lighted palace at night”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 July 2012

The gigantic palace looks amazing. The carvings are beautiful. The palace is beautifully built. I'm am no historic fan but i loved this palace. If possible try to have the night view of the palace where the palace is lighted with numerous bulbs... the view of this lighted palace will take you breath away. I'm not sure if the lights go on daily so just check before you go
