About Attraction

One of the royal palaces of t­he Holkar dynasty, the LalBagh Palace is one of the most prominent examples of Holkar era architecture in Indore ! It is one of the best palaces and historical attractions in Indore ! It was commissioned by Tukoji Rao Holkar (reign: 1844 - 1886) and was completed by Shivaji Rao Holkar (reign: 1886 - 1903) in 1890 at a cost of Rs. 1.5 lacs ! Tukoji Rao Holkar (reign: 1903 - 1926) was the last king to reside in this palace; he lived here until his death in 1978 !

Built on the banks of river Saraswati, this palace was surrounded by beautiful lawns & trees, spread over an area of 28 acres ! At one point of time, the palace had one of the best rose gardens in India !

It was also considered as one of the most stylish royal residences in India ! Its heavy-duty cast iron entrance gates, replica of those at the Buckingham Palace London, were imported from England ! More stylish features included marble columns, Bohemian chandeliers, stained-glass windows, and even spring-mounted floor in the central ballroom for extra bounce during ball dances ! The LalBagh Palace is a unique blend of Renaissance, Palladian, and Baroque styles of architecture ! The palace’s art & architecture was modelled on that of Palace of Versailles, Paris, which is one of the most beautiful palaces in the world !

Another interesting feature of the palace was its kitchen, on the other side of River Saraswati, which was linked to the palace by a bridge and also by an underground tunnel ! Small lift for taking the food upstairs and a horizontally-moving cart for cleaning the ceiling were among the many other innovations in the palace !


It is open for visitors from 10:00 AM to 06:00 PM, Tuesday through Sunday (Closed on Monday) !

 "LalBagh"

The palace talks everything about Holkar family. You can see beautiful furnitures and rooms inside the palace. There is no opportunity of carrying a mobile phone inside the palace for clikcing a photograph. If you are a history lover, you should visit once.

 "Taste of the Holar Rulers"
Lal Baag Palace is one of the most spectacular buildings in Indore. It stands on the outskirts of the town, towards the southwest. It is a three storey building on the bank of the River Khan. The palace was built by Maharaja Shivaji Rao Holkar during 1886-1921. Situated amidst dry and dusty gardens, it is architecturally quite similar to the New Palace. Lal Bagh Palace once hosted many royal receptions and even today, reflects the life style and taste of the Holkar Rulers.

 "Grandeur & Magnificence of Holkars"
Lalbagh Palace is great! However, its maintenance & upkeep is in shambles :( 

MP Tourism should do something to bring back the glory of this wonderful monument.
