Amar Mahal information
In the 20th century the Marharajas moved from Mubarak Mahal, further up the ridge to this very European brick mansion complete with token castle-style tower. An interesting museum-like interior introduces the characters who once lived here and with the 'special' ticket you'll be escorted upstairs to peruse the Maharani's chambers with Queen Victoria portrait and bathroom complete with perfume collection. Before leaving, peep through the front curved verandah window to see the raja’s canopied throne made from 101kg of gold.
Then, perhaps, retire for a cocktail at the refreshingly air-conditioned Polo Lounge bar of the Hari Niwas Palace Hotel that shares the same manicured cliff-top lawns.
