Maharaja Ganga Singh
: Blend Of Oriental and European Style
Designed by a Britisher for Maharaja Ganga Singh, this palace displays a superb blend of Oriental and European style. The terraced lawns and the Bougainvillea bushes add beauty to the palace. Peacocks stroll around the palace, which has been partly transformed into a hotel.
The intricate filigree work and latticework exhibit the refinements and delicacy of craftsmanship. The palace museum displays well preserved hunting trophies and old photographs. The library of the
Lalgarh palace is believed to have the biggest collection of original Sanskrit manuscripts on parchments, copper and gold or silver plaques.
The exterior contrasts dramatically with the oriental interiors and amenities. The palace has good-looking latticework and filigree work, which are hallmarks of a great craftsmanship. 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.
