The architecture of the  palace looks amazing which is a mix of Rajasthani, European and Mughal architecture. Exterior of the palace really gives me an impression that I reached somewhere in Rajasthan, palace looks really beautiful.

So as we enter the palace there was a 4-5 stalls setup there which includes handicrafts, momos & samosa, softdrinks and chips etc. Also here we took Tonga ride which was fun. We enjoyed here and I hope you also like my experience of visiting Mubarak mandi palace to attend baisakhi mela.
