    Why to visit this place

    A prominent royal residence that occupies a square kilometre of land is known as Ujjayanta Palace. Designed after Greek sculpture, it was constructed in 1901 for 10 lakh rupees by Maharaja RadhakishoreIan Manikaya. Rabindranath Tagore gave Ujjayanta Palace its name.

    The palace is surrounded by huge lughole-style gardens that are embellished with ponds, fountains, tiled floors, curving oak ceilings, and handcrafted doors. The three-story palace features a hybrid architectural style with three tall domes, the tallest of which is 86 feet in the centre.

    Numerous Hindu temples honouring Lakshmi Narayan, Uma-Maheshwari, Kali, and Jagannath can be found inside the palace. Public halls like the Throne chamber, the Durbar hall, the Library, and the Reception hall are located in the main block.

    Two sizable tanks are located on either side of the well-designed gardens, and the fountains are arranged in the same patterns as the Mughal gardens. The palace's beauty is enhanced at night by floodlights.

    Tickets are available at the on-site ticket desk.
