A journey through the corridors of lesser-known palaces in India

Palaces of yore usually have an in-your-face grandeur, a pomposity and lush orchestration of various elements: architecture, interiors, history and even the occasional spook. It’s no secret, however, that some relatively unknown palaces are strewn all across India, providing the buzz of discovery to the stray visitor that their flamboyant cousins cannot impart. Some of these have an aggrieved, abandoned air; others have rich interiors and well-maintained facades; while many have not been lived in and were built on a whim for a visiting royal guest who failed to show up. We undertake a journey through corridors that echo with stories of valorous deeds, love, loss and longing as well as skullduggery and intrigue.
