The entry to the palace

The city palace has severla gates that are known as pols.The bara pol is the main gate to the city complex.Once you enter the palace you start getting the royal feeling .The walk in the palace takes you back to the past historical period since inside the palace their are actual belongings of the royal family on display.You can see the clothes and the boots worn by the maharaja.Take a look inside the room where the raja and rani used to sit together and talk.Believe me the things make you nostalgic.
