About Visit the Townhouse of Tambekar Wada

Tambekar Wada is a beautiful Maratha mansion, which once served as the residence of Bhau Tambekar, the erstwhile Diwan of Baroda. The townhouse is famous for its colorful 19th-century murals depicting scenes from the Mahabharata and the narratives from the life of Lord Krishna. These designs also feature contemporary scenes of the 19th-century Anglo-Maratha War, which are usually placed on the parts of walls above the doors. The narrow strips of walls between doors used to showcase paintings that depict music and dance. Many of the large paintings are like scrolls, which narrate stories in small scenes. All these paintings were made in 1870 by using the Secco technique. Only two rooms in this haveli are surviving, while the rest of it is literally in shambles.

Historical Context: Tambekar Wada is a Maratha Mansion almost 140 years old
