After coming from Rajasthan, I really did not have too much expectations from palaces elsewhere. Bt this one took my breath away ! If you go on a good weather day, it looks straight out of the K3G type of movies! A must must visit for all visiting the city for work/ chilling. Take a tour inside!

Small Palace as compared to the Magnificent Mysore Palace, but very well managed. Tickets are bit overpriced, however the audio guides are so informative and meticulous with history and relevance of each and every corner of the palace, it makes your visit a must if you are a history and arts and architecture buff.

Admission price with audio guide is just over 1000 rupees for 2 non national adults. Then, another 685 rupees if you want to use your camera. The palace needs a good clean and some of the artefacts do not belong there.

Nice building full of history, but not comparable to the Mysore Palace. Visit guided by audio guide. Requires some conservation works. Even so, is worth the visit if you're interested in architecture of this period.

Tickets for Indians are priced at 230 rupees per person. While the price does include an audio guide, this ticket grants you only 40 minutes time inside the palace. 40 minutes to see a palace?! If you want to enter with a still camera you have to pay 685 rupees! This is simply atrocious! If you want to use a... More
