Lal Bagh Palace, Indore

Palace and museum show history, ancient culture, and it also represents the way people lived. A Palace mostly shows the luxury lives of those rich and well-established families and rulers of that time.

Recently it was a visit to a palace called, Lal Bagh Palace in Indore. Its architecture outside is common, not much attractive from outsides like other palaces and museum’s But Architecture inside the palace is really beautiful which is really attractive.

Side view of the Palace

The palace is the sign of Holkar rulers who ruled this region. It was built by Tukoji Rao and Shivaji Rao belongs to Holkar dynasty. Its construction started 1844 and end up to 1903 ad. It was the palace where those rulers lived which was highly influenced by British architecture and designs.

After taking tickets we headed inside. The palace has big entry gates which represent royalty. At the entry gate, we have to put our mobile and camera, as these are not allowed inside the palace.
Its a well finished palace and it gives a royal look. Walls are painted in bright colors. after a few footsteps, it was a Dining hall, where one thing I found Charismatic was paintings at ceilings which were reflecting on a table on the floor. Some paintings depict royal families portraits and queen which catches the eyes of everyone. There are beautiful carvings on the walls which makes it different.

Another view

After this, another thing you will definitely like here is Statues of tigers which looks like real. The skin of the tiger was used to make these. The sharp teeth’s and the skin fills it with reality. Though these are enclosed in a glass box for protection. If you are going there with kids, then they will surely like it. Length of the tiger is almost 6 feet or even more.

Then when you will go upstairs, there are some other statues, antiques, and different clocks. there were some meeting rooms and guest rooms which shows occasional gatherings of the palace. There are some separate dining halls with some unique designs on the ceiling.

It takes about an hour maximum to visit the palace. Though there is a garden when you come out of the palace. This garden is filled with trees and the statues of British rulers which can be a good place to take the selfie. Here you can take pictures.
