I found the “Magic Flower” fascinating. This is a marble fresco at the base of a pillar around the Sheesh Mahal, which has a flower carved in such a way that seven unique designs can be seen within it, depending on which part of the panel you hide with your hands. You can see a fish tail, a lotus, a hooded cobra, an elephant’s trunk, a lion’s tail, a cob of corn and a scorpion. #CoxandKings
The architecture of Hotel Shiv Vilas is amazing. We were mesmerized by the fusion of Victorian, Persian and Mughal architecture and it has a grand lobby. When we reached the hotel, we were given a royal welcome with a garland, aarti and a welcome drink.
