  • Very tiny portion of the palace is open as a museum. Not really anything exciting to see. Just a good looking palace from outside.

  • Although the palace in itself is pretty, however for tourists, around 20%of the place is only visible, rest is utilized as a hotel and king's home, hence we can't enter. In the 20% visible area, mostly the images are kept instead of actual items for display, which made the visit a little boring for me. You will also find a royal astrologer over there, to whom although i visited for fun, but eventually he ended up saying the pointers which were true. Do try this if interested in astrology.
  • Huge and well preserved palace. But not fully open for public. You can access 10% of the palace by purchasing 30 rs entry ticket. Ticket valid for museum and 3-4 rooms only. Not allowed to walk on the garden. You can see front view of the palace (Exterior) from the vintage car museum. Carry your water bottles. From city center it will cost 100-120 rs by Rickshaws.
