No photo available!
A dazzling citadel on the backdrop of a wood side hill, Arki palace is quite famous for its lovely frescos of the Arki Kalam style. This gargantuan structure displays splendid architectural works with intricately designed roofs and motifs depicts various themes of contemporary importance. Though in ruins, the murals and the wall paintings are worth a visit. The murals depict various subjects from puranas to folklores. Kalidasa’s Kumarasambhava is brilliantly painted on the walls of the palace that garners attention.

An 18th century citadel that is built by Raja Prithvi Singh, Arki palace is simply a relic of its past glory. Part of this palace has been turned in to a heritage hotel where one can witness the kingly elegance and royal grandeur in its full bloom. From here one can see the spectacular view of the snow capped mountains and other higher altitudes of the Himalayas. As dark falls on this palace, one can get beautiful views of the lights dotting the town below. At a glance, the palace looks like a posh hotel, yet retaining its artistic grandeur of the yesteryears

It is unbelievable that this flamboyant citadel was once upon a time a hub of artistic talents. Its serene location against the wood side hill is the only thing that remains unaffected.
