Architecture of Lallgarh Palace
The Lallgarh Palace complex was designed by a British architect, Samuel Swinton Jacob, who valued the contribution of the local Indian craftsmen. The palace is reminiscent of the Indo-Saracenic style with hints of classical Mughal and Rajput touches. It is a three storey complex built in red sandstone and contained the features considered essential for a late 19th-century palace: drawing rooms, smoking rooms, guest suites, several grand halls, lounges, cupolas, pavilions, including a dining room which could seat 400 diners. The palace features magnificent pillars, elaborate fireplaces, Italian colonnades and intricate latticework and filigree work.
