These are all the rooms and villas that housed the people living inside the palace. You can find the royal palanquins and the art that palace’s people indulged in like painting, etc. Take a look at the historic royal furniture and lattice wood work including the armour used in the battles fought by kings for kingdoms. Several queens have marked their hand prints on the gates before committing Jauhar. This was a suicide procedure that queens and young princesses took part in for kings who were defeated in the battlefield. Though these hand prints were smeared with thick paint and silver foil some of them are quite visible even now.
