Very peaceful place. Nice ambience. Good for spending 1-2 hrs. This place has some nice collection of memories and used objects of Mahatma Gandhi. Location is easily reachable, besides main road. Ample bike and car parking space. Nominal entry fees is charged. Normal working hours.
I WANT TO VISIT THIS PLACE BECAUSE I READ THIS PLACE IN MY HISTORY BOOK, I VISITED THIS PLACE DURING 1st Rain of 2018. BEST ABOUT THIS PLACE: 1)Peaceful place with lavish greenery 2)Good for small children. 3)you can enjoy with your friends. 4)palace is really beautiful. CAN BE IMPROVED: 1)only ground floor is open for visitors, i wish that some time they will open top floor as well. 2)we looking for detail information of gandhi which can be provided. overall: peaceful beautiful awesome 3/5
The place was neatly organized according to the period it represents. Good for a history buff, but not much for others. For a common person or a tourist, there is very little to see. You could probably do a self-guided tour in 15-30 minutes. After the visit, the garden surrounding the Palace is good for a stroll for a few minutes and taking some pictures. When we visited, there were not many people around and it was easy to read the signs and literature posted talking about the significance of the palace. I enjoyed my visit and felt good as it was quiet. I wish there was more to see.
Palace of royal family with quality of structure and build. It has very large rooms dedicated to some of our freedom fighters. There is समाधी स्थल also. Canteen also setup at end of premises with options of tasty snacks, fresh fruit juices and milk shakes for boosting our energy to roam around in beautiful palace garden.
