Now converted into a very beautiful, eco friendly Heritage Homestay by his descendants. This two-storied mansion is built in laterite stone, and is situated close to the city of Cuttack in Odisha, near the forest and hills of Dalijoda range, which gives a scenic backdrop to the palace. Two large water bodies in the foreground gives it a serene touch and tourists can enjoy an alfresco dinner next to the water on a moon-lit evening.
