It is the majestic palace where the power of the maharaja is shown.
The human being of the entrance looks like a miniature.

Thank you for showing capital scenery.

That's a massive structure, I can only imagine what it took to build it. Did you get a peek inside, JM? Or were you staying there?

Paula,
This must be the most amazing hotel I've seen, the interiors are simply incredible! I haven´t stay there but had lunch and dinner. Enlarging the pic you can clearly see the restaurant tables.
