Other than the Jain temples this is the only place worth visiting inside the Fort. Its well maintained and if you like your history you will enjoy this place as it is full of history, lots to read and think about.

Located just inside the fort proper, the palace is a wealth of Rajput history and architecture. It's worth taking the audio tour as it is very comprehensive.
