This is a beautiful palace of red sand stone, which stands
amidst the most picturesque environments of Jammu.
There is beautiful view of the Shivaliks (also spelt as Shiwaliks) at the
north and the River Tawi flows down below adding to the grandeur. This was
once the residential palace of Raja Amar Singh.
The palace has been converted to a museum and is looked after by Hari-Tara Charitable trust. The museum has a golden throne made of 120kg pure gold sofa and has golden lions embedded into it. The throne is placed in a hexagonal room.
The palace museum consists of a gallery of paintings known as "Nal Damyanti". It also has a library of around 25,000 books on various subjects and disciplines. This is really a beautiful spot to be visited round the year in Jammu. Hotel Hari Nivas Palace Hotel, which is a Heritage Hotel, is also located adjacent to this.
Road: Auto Rickshaws from anywhere in the Jammu city can take one to this place on payment of nominal charges. Minibuses do also ply but are not allowed to enter the Palace complex so one has to walk upto the palace.
