about lallgarh palace

The greatest symbol of Bikaner’s aspiration to be one of the modern kingdoms of the world was the building of Lallgarh Palace by Ganga Singh. He named it after his father Maharaja Lall Singh (who insisted on the two ll's). It advertised Ganga Singh’s endeavour to make Bikaner more robust economically and was a link with the traditions of the past. The plan was drafted by Sir Swinton Jacob, the foremost architect of early 20th century. A huge but compact palace, Lallgarh is built entirely of red sandstone. Said to be the best exemplar of a Rajput palace, its façade is almost entirely composed of the pierced stone screens called jaalis, which served to keep the sun out even as they let in the tiniest whiff of breeze.

Former residence of the emperor of Bikaner, Maharaja Ganga Singh Ji, the Lallgarh Palace is opulence defined in stone. With lattice work balconies, beautifully carved ceilings and history locked away in every nook and cranny, the palace is a majestic sight which can charm anyone and everyone. Do check out the Laxmi Niwas Palace inside, its worth a thousand pictures.
