I expected a lot out of this place. I was very disappointed to see that the palace is not well maintained. The priests in the temples inside the palace were very rude. Their mission is to make some money from the visitors. Most of the...More

This is a very interesting must see. The entrance fee is 5 rupees. It helps to have a guide. Look for the fish in the pond outside which you can feed.

Big wooden elephant welcomes you to the palace. The architecture is superb. The palace is very cold from inside. Each and every room has some story to say. The artefacts are preserved well.
