Badal Vilas

Badal Vilas Review

Inside the Mandir Palace, the Badal Vilas (Cloud Palace) is home to the historic Tazia Tower, a delicate five-tier pagoda; each tier has an intricately carved balcony. Muslim craftsmen built the tower in the shape of a tazia—a replica of a bier carried in procession during Mohurram, a Muslim period of mourning.
