You can get to this fort by jeep- or by elephant! Of course, walking is always an option, but it is a hefty climb. Once at the top, the fort is on three levels and it is worth slowly meandering... more »
Just WOW! The palace is magical with its stunning architecture. You can see many classy paintings and century-old majestic mirrors. There are some silent and nice spots to sit and have a coffee if you wish. Thanks to the authorities for maintaining this place the way it deserves. There is sufficient parking space outside if you are coming in your vehicle.
Beautiful. Amazing. Loved this palace. It's so well built ,you get the feel of royal lifestyle. These were rich kings who lived a lavish life. Recommend you to hire a guide. Sadly there is no mention of architects n people who laboured to built this beautiful palace. (Well it's like that with all the monuments in India)
