Location: Named after Jawaharlal Nehru, the first prime minister of India, Nehru center was once considered to be the residence of ruling maharajas and is among the most famous attractions of Indore.
Description: The city of Indore has seen many freedom struggles but it still stands strong. Once under the rule of Holkar dynasty, the town was taken over by the British army. Many monuments and buildings were built during the pre-historic era, which represent the royal lifestyle of the maharajas. One of such places remains the Nehru Center or the Lal Bagh, as it is alternatively called.
Built in a confusing manner and decorated similarly, this residence has now been converted into a cultural center and a museum. While visiting the center, a tourist can see separate dining rooms that have been designed according to Indian as well as western architecture style, a dance floor that is made up of wood, a billiard room and a painted ceiling. In the lawn of the Nehru center, Queen Victoria’s statue welcomes the visitors.
Activities: A visitor can sight various trophies that adorn the atrium and also include stuffed tigers. The Lal bagh palace is a blend of French chateau, Italian villa and modern amenities and offers an insight of the British rule. An exquisite attraction, this museum is worth a visit.
