Makarpura Palace

Makarpura Palace was initially constructed with the motive that it will serve as a summer palace for the royal family of the Gaekwads.

Built-in 1870 and given an Italian touch of architecture, it was renovated years after it was built because the palace was left unused as the royal family preferred spending most of their summers in the relatively cooler Nilgiris of Tamil Nadu. It now serves as a training school called No.17 Tetra School used by the Indian Air Force and civilians are not allowed because of security reasons.
