Pratap Vilas Palace and Peter Scott Nature Park
The royal palace was built between 1907 and 1915 with a grand mix of European styles. In 1968 Jam Singh converted the palace grounds into a nature park and brought in live specimens of various species, in a supreme effort of conservation. Unfortunately, after the confiscation of privy purses of the princely rulers, this park has not been as well taken care of. Both the palace and the park require permission from the royal family to enter, which you can ask for at the office in Darbar Gadh.
