sneaky shot of the splendid marble palace. sadly, photography is prohibited so could only afford to take this shot secretly. of course this did little justice to its colonial elegance, which is in stark contrast to its rather shabby surroundings. paid 100rs of cha- money to get in. the interiors were full of paintings and sculptures by indian artistes of the raj period. a larger-than-life statue of queen victoria facing a bust of medusa; delicate china ceramics stood beside self portriats of indian painters. so excessive and overwhelming, the place felt kind of baroque in a surreal way. it was like stepping right into a contained time capsule, even the courtyard in the center was covered by a netting to keep out the birds. yet even so they couldnt stop the decay that had been spreading all over the once splendorous capital of the british raj from encroaching upon the palace. the floor was dusty, the carpets rolled up; it belonged to an era merely a century or so ago, but seemed so distant one can only dream of it.
Diwan-I-Khas was a private audience hall of the Maharajas, a marble floored chamber. It is located between the armoury and the art gallery.
There are two huge sterling silver vessels of 1.6 metres (5.2 ft) height and each with capacity of 4000 litres and weighing 340 kilograms (750 lb), on display here. They were made from 14000 melted silver coins without soldering. They are officially recorded by the Guinness Book of World Records as the world's largest sterling silver vessels. These vessels were specially made by Maharaja Sawai Madho Singh II, who was a highly pious Hindu, to carry the Ganga river water to drink on his trip to England in 1901 (for Edward VII's coronation) as he was finicky about committing religious sin by consuming the English water. Hence, the vessels are named as Gangajelies (Ganga water holding urns). There are a number of crystal chandeliers hanging from the ceiling (normally covered with plastic sheets to prevent dust collection), which are uncovered on special occasions
