Rani Kamlapati Palace

Kamlapati Palace is an old Palace that was built by Queen Kamlapati, the queen of Bhojpal, which is now known as Bhopal. Kamlapati was the exceptionally charming spouse of a Hindu Gond warlord called Nawal Shah, whose capital was in Ginnaur. The palace is positioned on a bridge connecting the smaller and the bigger lake. This palace was made in the year 1722. It was named after Rani Kamlapati who then was the widow of Nizam Shah. The primary part of the Kamlapati Palace is currently the workplace for Archeological Survey of India and is a living legacy to date. This is the only part that is properly maintained. The two-storey building has balconies towards the lower lake and arches towards the garden. Adjoining this square are the remnants of what once would have been a 2-storey building facing the beautiful lake, with three arches on every floor. A long arrangement of stairs leads the floor below, which additionally has three arched openings in the Ghats where the Queen had her bath. The whole complex is based on a huge mass of the dam constructed by Raja Bhoj, isolating the lower and upper lakes.
