Although the Maharajahs no longer rule, they are rich and live in palaces in the city. The complex contains a museum with royal costumes and polo outfits (the game was invented here). Near the inner courtyard are the Peacock, Lotus, Green and Rose gates symbolizing the four seasons. It’s overlooked by the towering yellow Chandral Mahal where the family lives. Salmon-colored arcaded pavilions with glass chandeliers, silver thrones and giant water vessels, fine paintings all speak of lives of unimaginable excess.
