We were very much pleased and excited to visit this private property. The building is more than 100 years old of this private art gallery built by Rajendra Malik. There are many precious and historic sculptures of white marbles and also original pictures and oil paintings and galicha. Don't forget to visit this place.

Okay place to visit

I found it a big over hyped place, it is just an old house famous for its marble flooring and walls. There is huge garden in front of the house which is just averagely maintained. Although you are allowed to go inside but you cannot click pictures as it is private property and descendants still lives over here. Tourist attraction is a marble palace zoo beside this mansion.
