Rana Kumbha Palace
Rana Kumbha Palace was built on the basis of Rajput architecture. Tourists can reach there through Paghara Pol. There is a blue coloured durbar hall inside the palace. In order to separate the men’s palace from women’s palace, a corridor was built in between them. In some of the women palaces, the walls were painted with elephants, crocodiles, and camels.

This palace has two storeys and there is a corridor which separates men portion from women portion. The walls are decorated with paintings of 19th century. The women palace has jaali screens built up of stones so that they could see the proceedings going on in the court.
