The palace includes fortified towers where the visitor could observe most of the stylish wood carvings and paintings in its Tudor-style structure completed with battlements, turrets with Gothic windows. The entrance of the palace has been added a unique elegance by its terrific door panel that leads to the grand settings inside. The exquisite ground floor is comprised with an open square that includes granite seats covered with blue ceramic tiles.

The “Durbar Hall” is located in the first floor of the palace which is sort of a completive hall reachable by the stylish staircase. Its wall area also festooned with one of a kind paintings and a huge elephant head has been built up as to be seen from every corner. Most of the features in the hall such as Gothic style stained glass windows, walls and the sofa set have been colored in Yellow. The paintings including Greek and Dutch paintings of the palace belong to the 19th century. The original cost of the palace has been estimated to be one hundred thousand rupees and up to now it has undergone several renovations adding some modifications to increase its attractiveness.
