The bustling, ever expanding concrete jungle that is Indore seems to have forgotten its roots. Once a land of riches and pride, the city is now just like any other developing town. Streets dug up and construction going on wherever you look.

With all that is going on here, it's easy to forget the culture and history of a place like Indore. Though not often associated with these things, Indore happens to have a very rich and diverse past that you've got to explore.

With this upcoming heritage walk in Indore, you can get a glimpse of Indore's past and how it played an integral role in India's independence back in 1947. With the 72nd Independence day upon us, there's no better time for this heritage walk than now.

The heritage walk will start off by walking to Lal Bagh Palace. One of Indore's oldest relic of the past, it was built way back in 1886 by the Holkar Dynasty. The architectural magnificence of the palace is striking to say the least and will leave you awestruck as you hear the tales of what went on in here and all that the walls were privy to.

Following your impression of the Lal Bagh Palace from the outside, you'll be taken inside and once again, you'll be left awestruck, feeling the otherworldly vibes that emanate from here. The sheer grandeur and the allure of the place will make you marvel at the achievements of the craftsmen who worked on this.

A daunting gate will await you and you'll be surprised to know that it happens to be a one of a kind gate in all of Asia! What's special about it is that the carvings here are finely done with the utmost care and precise intricacy. Even the Japanese haven't been able to replicate something similar.

Inside the palace, the main attraction is it’s large rooms that are adorned with beautiful carvings on the walls and ceilings. The rooms and walls each have a tale to tell. Even if you're a long time resident of Indore, this heritage walk is something that you shouldn't miss for the world.
