Personal Experiences

After riding the bike for about half an hour through a crowded market, I reached Rajwada. I took a ticket which was about 10 rs. I headed in. A garden in front surrounded by the pillar and some paintings. On the left side, there is a temple which is a very old temple famous as malhar temple.

Now it comes time to go upstairs. A museum with antiques, and paintings in front of me. I can see some statues, paintings, and other unique antiques. Statue of Natraj and some former rulers are attractive here. A glass shield provides protection to such antiques.


Rajwada was built by Marathas of Holkar rulers. This is a seven-story building in the middle of the city. It is a 200-year-old palace built about 1747 AD. But, it was burnt during the 1984 riots. It was then rebuilt and designed by HH Usha Raje Holkar based on old design and structure.
