The palace was built by the ruler Udait Singh in the 18th century as his personal rest house. It is a double-storeyed building, virtually an annex of the Jehangir Mahal, full of stairways winding through the thick walls accessing curious little rooms, a couple of courts and a few large rooms. One of them had mirror chips in the ceiling and a strategically-placed, full-length, cheval mirror which, from the enormous double bed, gave uninterrupted views of the huge stone tub in the bathroom. The Palace is now taken over by the MP Tourism Development Corporation and is rub as a hotel and restaurant.
