Alwar Palace:

This image is of Alwar Palace situated in Alwar, Rajasthan. It was built by Raja Bakhtawar Singh in 1793 A.D. In front of the palace there is a large ornamental tank. The interior of the palace is notable for the Sheesh Mahal which is dotted with Rajput miniature paintings sealed under glass. Near the Sheesh Mahal is the armory and the royal library, which contains a fine collection of oriental manuscripts including a copy of a beautifully illustrated Gulistan manuscript of 1848 A.D. It also has a rich collection of bejewelled sabres, swords and weapons. The Palace is a delicate rendering of the style which emerged out of the blend of Rajput and Mughal style of architecture.
