Naulakha Palace Interiors, Gondal

This magnificent 17th century palace of Gondal is one of the spectacles in the city. We have already got a glimpse of this palace in the earlier post on Naulakha Palace. A glimpse of royalty can be seen as the former living quarters of the palace has been converted into a private museum.



One can also see here the private library with large collection of books used by the the royal family.



The grand Darbar Hall simple yet beautiful with gilt wooden furniture, chandeliers, stuffed panthers and antique Belgian mirrors.



Other interesting items on display are the the baby crib, musical instruments, elephant hauda and many more items.



In other section where there are items used by the kids such as cot, chair, mirror, cupboard are on display.
