The second most visited attraction in India does not disappoint. 

The huge palace, one of the grandest I have ever visited mesmarised us with its grand, shining halls and corridors. The living quarters of the royals was interesting to see as well even though we could only look at it from outside.

There was a flower show in the premises while we were there and unfortunately the famous lightshow was under maintenance. 

The palace and it's infrastructures are designed well, and the entry fee for locals and foreigners are the same for a change! INR 100 for adults and 50 for children regardless of nationality.
