A grand palace that has now been transformed into a museum, Amal Mahal Palace is a must visit in Jammu. It was made for Raja Amar Singh, the king of Mewar, in the 19th century and has some of the most magnificent royal artefacts displayed. These include a 120-kg gold throne, Kangra miniature paintings, along with a library with 25,000 historic books and a large collection of precious art. The palace is made of red sandstone and its architecture resembles the grand chateaus of France.
