Day 1

The impromptu plans are the best plans I have ever experienced regarding my travels. So this weekend my father called me up around Friday and said if I am interested in visiting a palace of name I haven’t ever heard of (why I am emphasizing on this point because I am History majors) which was around 50 km from Bulandshahr, well how can I turn down a travelling offer and that too of a place many people have not heard of, so I told him to count me in( I am glad I did, even though I had a lot of work pending regarding the book I am writing).

The next morning I was at my home (my parents live there currently, part of government job) with my two cousin and my sister-in-law, who also wanted to take a break from their busy corporate life. We left home around 12 o’clock from my place which is another 30 minutes to the city. So it took us around one and a half hours to reach the palace which is in Kuchesar via Hapur road and by crossing Gulaothi, Uttar Pradesh.

After we reached the place we saw this

And I couldn’t hold my excitement back, and I might have raised my voice as well, “Dad was damn right about this place, it’s a Palace.” Wait until you see the interiors.

This place was built for the entertainment purpose in around 18th century so its architecture has a British look to it. Many famous films has also been shot here such as Ms. Tanakpur, The Hungry. The place was a total bliss for history lovers and for those who loves to spend some time in palace.

It was reconstructed around 2008 (if i am right, but i am sure it was somewhere around 2000). Before the reconstruction the place was a total mess, the owner of the palace told us. Outside each and every room they have put the photos all over the palace showing its condition before the reconstruction and after.

I was little upset with me for not taking my DSLR on this trip but my Samsung S8 did just fine. The rooms were so lavish that you get the feel of royalty.

Not many people know about the place so they don't get much guests and is mostly used for shooting purposes,  and those who know about this place as the owner told us is from local word. The history of this place is pretty interesting which made me decide to pay a visit to this place for a longer period of time and know more about it. 

Here are some more insights of the palace.
