The Moti Mahal (Palace of Pearls) was built by Mulraj II in 1813. The carvings on the doorway of the palace are of high quality, an ample testimony to the skill of the artisans who sculpted them. The frontage of the monument is also liberally embellished with beautiful floral patterns. The first floor of the palace (originally an audience chamber where the monarch met with his subjects) now houses a small school. Above on the second floor you will find elaborate decorations with mirrors and other inlay work.
