1. Title should summarise your review
2. Elaborate. Instead of 'Good sightseeing place', write, 'Beautiful temple with intricate architecture' or 'Kid-friendly park but limited rides'
Really beautiful, very quiet place, walking lane stretch of 1 kms, surrounded by gardens, sculptures, water fountains, etc. One can enjoy according to his mood & company. You can opt for cycling / yoga / jogging or simply just visiting the palace.
Amazing place to visit if one loves the company of nature and a royal, historical landmark of Maharaja Holkar for history lovers. Situated almost in the centre of Indore city, the palace is a mark of royalty and also reflects the culture of Indore city.
