Rajwada Indore

Indore Rajwada During Indore city tour, Rajawada is considered as must see tourist attraction. It is one of the oldest and the historical places to be visited in Indore. Rajwada stands in the heart of the busiest part of the town and is close to the Chhatris. Facing it is a garden with a statue of the great Queen Ahilyabai. The face that enclose the gateway of the palace gives an impression of a rather forbidding wizard`s castle. The palace has a blend of French, Mughal and Maratha Architecture. This 200 year old palace seven story building (only facade remains) serves as an living example of the Grandeur of Holkars dynasty. This palace was constructed by the Holkers in around 1747 A.D.

The architecture of this building is a mixture of Maratha, Mugal and French style. The monuments made up of gopura stone and wood structure, balconies and windows studded with flanked bastions, provides the testimony of the past grandeur of Holkars. The three lower stories are made up of stone and are painted in a dark brown format. The upper floor is made up of wood, which made it very vulnerable to be destruction by fire. In the history Rajwada was burnt three times and the fire that led in 1984 caused the most destruction and then it was converted into a garden.

In 2006 the present Maharani of Indore H.H.Ushadevi Holkar decided to rebuilt the ford and bring back its past glory. Architects Himanshu Dudwadkar and Shreya bhargava were called to redesign this fort. In 2007 was completed and again attained his place in the history. It also became the first building in India which has been rebuilt with the same material, style and method that was been used in the previous time to construct the Rajwada palace

The three floors rising above them have their windows outline in white giving the impression of multiple eyes grazing down at one from a well-defended fortress. Its huge entrence archway made above the huge wooden doors coated with iron studs, leads into a vast court yard enclosed by the gallery rooms and arcaded Ganesh hall. It was the place where religious functions of the states were once held. Art exhibitions and classical music concerts take place here.

While walking through the gates of the palace there are bright sunlit, quadrangles which are surrounded with beautiful galleries and delicate arches which are considered as very delicate arches with great elegance. As the in the palace Holkars has followed the example of there Queen Rani Ahilyabai the surrounding made here is very welcoming and been accessible to the humblest of there subject.
