Indore is a medium-sized Indian city (2 million inhabitants) in the Indian state of Madhyar Pradesh. Endearing city, like all cities in India.

We visited this city during the trip to Ujjain to attend the Kumbh Mela in 2016. From a tourist point of view I doubt that I can choose this locality for my holidays even if it has undeniable architectural treasures like the Lal Bagh Palace , the Rajwada palace or the small temple temple Jain Shri Neminath Digambar Mandir.

This city is the capital of the state Madhya Pradesh, it has an airport which greatly facilitates travel from Mumbai to Ujjain.

 

The Rajwad Palace, also named Holkar Palace, is one of the beautiful attractions of the city of Indore. The construction is around 200 years old ,and the structure mixes Mughol, French and Marathi elements. The Marathi Empire developed around the end of the 16th century in northern India, succeeding the Mughals, and disappearing with the British conquest.

 

At the beginning of the 20th century, the wealthy merchant and industrialist Sir Seth Hukumchand built two white stone palaces in Indore, the Shish Mahal and the Kanch Ka Mandir. It is the interior of these palaces that is most remarkable (but we were unable to take photos there) because it is completely covered with glass panels and mosaics (including the floors, columns, walls and ceilings).
