Akbar's Palace & Museum Travel

Small but elegant citadel, built by Emperor Akbar, this palace lures the tourists with its invincible structure. Flanked by two parallel dense walls, this was the place where Jahangir met the British ambassador Sir Thomas Roe. Constructed in the year 1570, this palace is considered as one among the mightiest citadel in the southeast part of Rajasthan.

The fort walls include a double storied bastion enclosed by a chain of columns held jointly at the top by bends. A hefty foyer in the core of the turret leads into so many rooms, this palace was intended for the emperor and his troops whilst there stay in Ajmer. This magnificient palace serves as an ostentatious way to obtain quixotic and riotous history of Ajmer.

This impressive structure is transformed into a Museum in 1908, which functions all days of the week except on Fridays. The working hours is scheduled between 10 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. During Mondays the museum witness large crowds, since there is no entry fee on that day.

The museum holds Hindu figurines that date back to 6th and 7th century, which are the classic reminiscent of Rajput and Mughal reigns. This museum also houses an imposing black marble effigy of Goddess Kali. The Museum exhibits medieval and ancient artillery and arsenals, fabulous paintings and sculptures on stones, which makes the visit very precious.
