Nabha House

THE ROYAL ABODE OF THE NABHA PRINCIPALITY

NABHA HOUSE

This palatial building was constructed by the royal family of the Nabha principality. This monument was used by the royal family members to stay during the days of religious performances in Kurukshetra. The building stands on a raised platform. The entrance gate is on the eastern side and its sides are decorated with four arched niches (mihrab). There are two beautiful pillared windows (jharokha) on the second floor of the building. The base and the top of these pillars have been decorated with a lotus design. A temple dedicated to Brahma is constructed on the top of the monument. It is 15 ft tall and built on the ‘navaratha’ (nine corners) plan. The wooden door at the entrance is studded with decorative iron nails, which represent the Hindu style of architecture. The main entrance through another gate leads to a rectangular courtyard and stairs on the southern side of the courtyard lead to the temple on the second storey.
