Royal Abodes of yesteryears - Princely Palaces in New Delhi


Take a trip down the Delhi’s colonial past to visit the royal abodes of rulers of princely states which dot the Lutyen’s Delhi. These were built when New Delhi came up in the Colonial era. The British allotted land to various rulers of the princely states. So in way they served between the two in the imperial capital. These places now have been converted into Government offices of central or the state governments.

Sumanto Bhowmick: Sumanto is history buff and the author of the publication Princely Palaces in New Delhi, the first one to record and compile them in a single volume.
