Orchard Palace, Gondal

Huzoor Palace at Gondal is the royal residence. In the late 19th century an additional section was added to this palace to host personal guests of the Maharajas. 



This annex of the Huzoor Palace is known as Orchard Palace and is open to the public. The property gets its name from the fruit orchards that surround the palace.



The "Room of Miniatures" is a living room with a collection of miniature paintings, brass, and furniture. The rooms of the palace show case decorative furniture, antiques and handicrafts.



One of the highlights of the palace is the Rail Saloon of the royal family.



Today this property has been converted into seven-room heritage hotel. This place is also a delight for bird watchers.

This little bird enjoyed her visit to your palace! I would like to stay there too! Our new apartment comes semi furnished and we have a chair very similar to the one in the first photo, which made me smile!
Have a great week Rajesh.
