 Lal Garh Palace
Built by Maharaja Ganga Singh Ji in the memory of his father Maharaja Lal Singh Ji in 1902 designed by Sir Swinton Jacob. The architecture is a mixture of Rajput, Mughal and European architecture. The exterior contrasts dramatically with the oriental interiors and amenities. The palace has beautiful latticework and filigree work.
The Palace has an amazing collection of well-maintained paintings and hunting trophies. Sprawling lawns with blooming bougainvillea and dancing peacocks make a visual extravagance.
