It was then that the farmers sought the help of their ruler Umaid Singh, to help them get some work. The people’s king decided to construct this luxurious palace to provide employment to his farmers. Today one part of the palace houses the royal museum, which displays an amazing collection of items that belonged to the royal family. The museum displays vintage items ranging from a ride array of royal weapons to even stuffed leopards. You would also be astonished to see some amazing antiques and fascinating crockery.
