The Gaj Vilas was commissioned during the reign of Maharawal Gaj Singh who reigned from 1819-45, and as an inevitable consequence the palace was named after him as well. The palace is one of the marvels of Rajasthani architecture, particularly of the stone carver?s art. The Gaj Vilas is profusely decorated with carved cupolas, balconies, panels, columns and brackets.
