Padmavati Palace is located in the heart of Chittorgarh Fort, Rani Padmini's Palace is a white building and a three storied structure surrounded by water. It is at this Palace where Alauddin was permitted to glimpse the mirror image of Rani Padmini, wife of Maharana Rattan Singh. It is relatable to Padmavat movie
