Lakhota Palace, now a museum, exhibits artefacts spanning from 9th to 18th centuries. The top attractions are pottery from nearby medieval villages and the skeleton of a whale. The first thing that will grab your attention at the entrance is the guardroom that is decorated with muskets, swords and powder flasks. This is interesting as it takes you back into the history of the palace when it was originally designed as a fort so that soldiers posted around it could fend off an army of enemies with the lake acting as a moat. The walls of the museum are covered in frescoes depicting various battles fought by the ‘Jadeja Rajputs’. Visiting hours are from 10.30am-2pm and 2.30pm-5.30pm.
