One of the most historical buildings in Madhya Pradesh, Rajwada Palace dates back to the eighteenth century. Built by the Holkars of the Maratha empire in 1776, Rajwada is located near the famous Chhatris in Indore. It is renowned for its architectural brilliance and royal design. What is special about this seven-storey building is that it is a fine blend of Maratha and Mughal architecture. It has bastions on four corners and a huge wooden door with iron studs. The windows, aisles and arcades all take you back in time.
