The library is actually a replica of the one at Windsor Castle, meaning it ain't like your local public library. This is a place with rich history, which can be seen in its decor. It has a mahogany and ebony ceiling with wood-inlayed panels. The panels are engraved with the initials "V & O" after Prime Minister Sir Vicar Ul Omra, who built the palace in 1884. The room is also filled with teak and rosewood and lined with bookcases of rare books and manuscripts.
If you want to stay in this palace and check out its library, rooms start at 18,750 Indian rupees, or about $414.
