The Krishna Villas is dedicated to the daughter of Raja Bheem Singh who tragically killed herself in order to prevent an almost certain war. This beautiful 16yr old was betrothed to two princes who were fighting over her hand and threatening war if they each were given her as their bride. It was a no win situation for the Palace and seeing this young Krishan Kumari decided the only way to prevent a war was to kill herself. The Raja installed painted miniatures in the villa in 1805 in memory of his daughter.
