Had a good visit here and spent a few hours wondering around. Architecture amazing, weaponry scary, textiles beautiful. Did the audio tour which is good as you can go at your own pace. Beware some of the staff sorted around in traditional costumes as if you take their pic or have a pic taken with them some will want money.... More

Enjoyed walking through this palace. Is sort of a museum of its own where you get to read and see artifacts of the past.

Wonderful old complex of palaces, part of which are still lived in by the Maharajah; the nearest India has to a Royal family. Our original visit had been cancelled due to bad weather so our rescheduled visit was curtailed and we only had approx 1 hour here, when really 2 or 3 are needed to do full justice to this... More

If you really want to see a palace, go and see the Mysore palace or the New Palace in Kolhapur. This is absolutely not worth it.
