This court room of Queen Ahilyabaiis very simple and basic unlike the opulent and magnificient court rooms situated in other palaces. It has got few artifacts of her time and nothing much to see. Memorial of the queen with her larger than life-size statue is...More

Some parts of the Palace are Private property. Tourists have access to the Courtroom where Rani Ahilyabai used to attend to the matters of her state. The courtroom is simple as it is said the Queen had a simple lifestyle and did not believe in...More

Good collection of artifacts and life biographies from Holkar royal dynasty. Special mention is about Devi Ahilyabai; her place of worship, the deities she worshiped and how.

Rajwada, as the name suggest is the Palace belonging to Holkar dynasty, where Devi Ahilyabai used to reside. The Palace is located within the Maheshwar Fort. Most part of the palace is closed, however, what ever is open to the public is worth seeing.

The idea is very nice however with so many areas inaccessible it was disappointing. I was looking out for a more detailed experience with a lot more artefacts from the 18th century.
