Dai Ki Choti Behan Ka Mahal

This is the prospect presented when one approaches the tomb from the Carvan-sarai to the north. The tomb is octagonal in shape with arched openings in the four sides that face the main cardinal points. The dome reveals traces of blue tilework on the exterior.

Rajwada Indore

Rajwada is the historical palace of the Holkars. It was built about two centuries ago and is located near the Chhatris in the main square. It is a seven storied structure, which serves as the living example of the grandeur of the Holkars. Rajwada stands in the centre of the city. The new palace is on the northern side, while the old palace stands in the old part of the town. The old palace is a multi-storied building which also serves as a gateway of the Rajwada. It stands amongst the crowded streets of the Kajuri Bazar and faces the main square of the city.
