Bir Singh Palace

On one of the low hills over which the town is built stands the magnificent palace of Bir Singh Dev. This palace is one of the finest examples of domestic architecture of our country. It is said that Maharaja Bir singh Dev, while on his visit to Mathura in A.D. 1614, got himself weighed with gold and subsequently started constructing this palace, which was completed in nine years. It is built purely of stone and bricks with no trace either of wood or iron. It is built in the form of a square, the monotony being relieved by four octagonal towers, one at each corner, and string courses of stone lattice work defining the five storeys. The summit is ornamented by numerous chhatris crowned with ribbed domes, while many of the ceilings in its chambers are finely carved. The southern face over looks a large lake.
