Laxmi Vilas Palace
Laxmi Vilas Palace is a majestic building, a true demonstration of luxury and affluence. It is the residence of Vadodara’s royal family and was built in 1890 by Maharaja Sayajirao Gaekwad III. The palace was designed and built in the Indo-Saracenic architectural style (represents a synthesis of Muslim designs and Indian materials developed by British architects in India). The interior, with its chandeliers, artworks, water fountains and Belgium stained glass windows, resemble a large European country house. The Durbar Hall of the place often hosts music concerts and cultural events while the museum exhibits a rich collection of artworks that belong to the royal family. Admission is allowed for a small fee and an hour long audio guide is included.
