The Scindia Museum is part of the Jai Vilas Palace, built by Maharaja Jayajirao in 1874 using prisoners from the Gwalior fort. The convicts were then rewarded with the 12-year job of weaving the hall carpet, which is one of the largest in Asia. The palace has 400 rooms from which exclusively 40 rooms are transformed into Jiwaji Rao Scindia Museum.
