Good place to visit for tourists. Entry fee is a mere Rs.15 per person. Photography is allowed in the garden and there are no extra charges for it. Looks really beautiful in the rains. There is also a museum one may visit !
It's a beautiful palace but sadly not maintained. Just 3 rooms are open to the public and the rest of the palace is sealed. The gardens at the entrance are beautiful. Mahatma Ganghijis ashes are at the rear did of the palace and that tiny patch has grass and is maintained.The government should sponsor more funds for the upkeep of our heritage.
Its was a nice experience with greenery all around. Nice place for photo shoots..However the place was not very clean. More efforts should be taken to maintain this historical place..
good maintained and peaceful place. only one thing is missing which food court. only small canteen in one room having very limited food. Other than food everything is ok.
Nice quiet place to laze around on an afternoon. Be sure to carry your camera as the garden is really lovely. The photos inside the palace are rare but not well maintained. The building itself is royal. Apart from the garden and building (from outside), nothing much to see here. You do get a feeling that the time has stopped moving once you enter the building though and it's worth a visit just for that reason alone. PS: For the love of all that is holy, don't convert this place as a dating venue. A little respect for the place won't hurt anyone.
