After visiting a palace with marvelous architectural design, my family and I came to another such palace for a visit and it was the Samode Palace Jaipur. Before visiting the place, we had the
idea about the palace as I had read about it somewhere. I knew that the palace was one of the heritage monumental structures built by the noble feudatory having the hereditary title of 'Maha
Rawal' or 'Maha Saheb’ of the Amber and Jaipur principality in the state of Rajasthan, India.
The place in the whole consisted of a palace, a haveli and a bagh. The palace as we observed was built out of the material sandstone found at the bottom of the Aravalli ranges and was made in
such a way that it looked like a brilliant fortress. As we entered the palace we noticed that the place was made in a unique way and basically it was built in the ancient architectural style of
Rajasthan with marble floors, ornamented pillars and mosaic walls consisting of tiny pieces of small inlaid stones.
The presence of luxurious carpets and the walls being decorated with old paintings of hunting scenes, floral designs and many more made the palace look awesome. We also spotted a large unique
treasure chest at the entrance of the hall which was made out of dark wood and had gleaming glass and marble settings on it.
The palace had three levels or basically floors and an old fort was also present at the top of the palace which was ruined. But as it was at a good height, the whole view of the valley was
visible from the place itself which was very beautiful. Stone paths were present all along the way to travel inside the fort. Further, as the palace was very old, it was overgrown with vegetation
at many places and caused little troubles in moving back and forth. We also knew about the presence of an underground way so that the Maharaja could use it at emergency times.
We had a good time at Samode Palace Jaipur and then we decided to move ahead in the journey so as to witness more things of
