Jai Vilas Palace
History on Internet:  The palace was build by Raje Yashwant Rao Maukne. The stone used for this is syinite which was brought from Kalidhond which is 5 km away from its location . 

The pathway from the main road to the palace is lined with dense growth of bushes on both sides. 


Once you cross the trail a grand palace hidden among the trees welcomes you.
 




The palace has a children’s nursery, drawing room, antique furniture, bedroom, stuffed animals and a large lobby. 

There are several rooms at the palace. The palace has been used in the shooting of several Bollywood movies.
