An example of the Gothic style of architecture, the Raj Mahal was built during the reign of Maharaja Balbir Singh, at the end of the 19th century. The complex comprises a group of buildings within a vast and irregular-walled enclosure. It consists of the main palace, the Tasveer Ghar (picture house), a Baradari (a twelve-door, open pavilion), a gurdwara, three small pavilions called doll houses, two swimming pools, a well and service quarters. Its main entrance, a magnificent three-storey gateway called Raj Deori, is a hospital today. Spread over 15 acres, the splendid lawns were considered a remarkable achievement in this arid area.
