There are many old statues kept in this place of various deities and also large grounds to walk around. There are a few different places to see once inside the grounds, including a library, tower and palace.

Beautiful palace with museum , Sangeet hall and library. You can visit this place to understand the history of Tanjore during Sivaji's days. Not so well maintained , it can be improved.

The palace is great, and so is the library and the museum. Maintenance needs to be improved: it’s very sad to see such a beautiful building in those conditions.
