Jai Bhilas Palace:

This image is showing the architecture of Jai Bhilas Palace situated Gwalior, Madhya Pradesh. It is a magnificent city palace built by Maharaja Jayaji Rao between 1872 and 1874 A.D. After the first war of independence in 1857 A.D., the Scindias had the privilege of holding sway over the town of Gwalior. The Jai Vilas Palace reflects a mixed style of architecture i.e. Tuscan and Corinthian along with indigenous features. It’s chief architect Lt. Col. Sir Michael Filose, built the entire palace in a short span of two years for the forthcoming visit of Prince of Wales. The main entrances of Jai Vilas Palace are through covered porticos on the east and west of the centre of the South facade. The Durbar Hall measures 15 m. by 85 m. with the roof over 12 m. high. It has a pair of huge chandeliers with 248 candles apiece, each is 42 ft. high and weighs about 3 tons, one of the largest in the world. The glass furniture, with a lot of gold paint, and a huge dining table with a silver toy train used to serve drinks to the guests, reflect a synthesis of Italian and Indian Craftsmanship.
