Jai Vilas Palace, Gwalior - I






The Jai Vilas Mahal was built by Jiwaji Rao Schindia, Majaraja of Gwalior, in the 19th century and the royal family still resides there. A portion of it is opened to visitors. Here are some shots of the palace exterior. Click here for pictures of the palace interiors.

  3. Awesome captures... The clouds in the backdrop give that X factor effect to the frames you have captured. I am waiting to see the interiors.
