I have visited this palace many a times, a must when in Vadodara. The architecture is mainly French, many artifacts are from Italy and various countries. The grounds and verandahs are beautiful.

Beautiful palace, very well-maintained. The architecture was amazing. The weapons in the armoury were fascinating. The various rooms in the palace were very well-maintained. A must-visit. Vadodara is worth visiting just for this palace.
