Lalbagh PalaceNai Duniya, Indore, Madhya Pradesh 452007 Phone: Not Available Average Price: $ 0 per person
The Lalbagh Palace has an architecture influenced by the Europeans. It almost seems as if every extravagant style, every new whim of European architects, was incorporated in the palace and its furnishings. Thus, a walk around the Lalbagh could become a lesson, for students of Design, in the variations of decor and form that Europeans evolved for their homes over many decades. If technical terms are of interest to the visitor, then the architecture is a blend of Renaissance, Palladian and Baroque. The pillars in the palace rise in the three classic styles: Doric, Ionian and Corinthian. Also there are Greek and Latin mythological sculptures and paintings of Poseiden and Demeter, Helios and Hephaistos long with naiads, griffins and cherubs floating across the painted ceilings. And naturally, there are chandeliers, expensive drapes, and huge mirrors to replicate all this exuberance over and over again.
