Jagatjit Palace, Kapurthala

Jagatjit Palace, popularly known as the Sainik School, was built by HRH Maharaja Jagatjit Singh, the king of Kapurthala, between 1900 and 1908. Designed by the French architect M. Marcel and built by Allah Ditta, it fairly resembles palaces of Versailles and Fontainebleau. Its elaborate figures and decorative ceilings are reminders of the renaissance style of French architecture.

The great Durbar Hall (Diwan-e-Khas) and Sunken Park (Baija) at the front are sure to capture the attention of tourists. Talented European and Indian craftsmen were called to decorate the exceptionally beautiful interiors of the palace. It also boasts of antique artworks brought from countries like France, Italy and Holland.
