Sawantwadi Palace, Sawantwadi

   The Royal Palace of Sawantwadi (also known as the Sawantwadi Palace) is one of the major tourist attractions of the town. Built by Khem Sawant Bhonsle, the ruler of this region during 1755-1803. Entry gate (Lester gate) was built in 1895.The bricked brown walls of the palace have a very ethnic touch to it. Wonderfully carved rooms, war weapons and verdant environs inspire you to flip through your history books once again. Another specialty of the palace is the wonderful arts and crafts that are developed here. The walls of the palace are neatly plastered with old photographs, which make your sauntering around a very knowledgeable experience. The Queen of the royal Sawant Bhonsle family still lives in the palace and humbly shares interesting anecdotes with visitors on selected days.
