Tambekar Wada information
Lonely Planet review
This wooden multi-storeyed townhouse is a typical Maratha mansion, once the residence of Bhau Tambekar, diwan of Baroda (1849–54). Inside are beautiful 19th-century murals featuring scenes from the Mahabharata, Krishna’s life and the 19th-century Anglo-Maratha War. Many are worn and poorly lit by ambient light, but they're still impressive.
