A haven for aesthetes, Indore's Nehru Centre is where history meets contemporary notions!

The Nehru Centre for Arts and Sciences was inaugurated on the 14th of November, 1988.

Fancy a trip down the annals of history? Then you have to visit the Nehru Centre for Arts and Science at the erstwhile Lal Bagh Palace in Indore- a historically important place that has been turned into a centre of activities. Apart from undertaking an educational tour here, come over to bear witness to the fine architectural taste of the Holkar Dynasty, spread across a sprawling area of almost 28 acres. An amalgamation of old-world charms and modern ideas, a trip to the Nehru Centre is exactly the kind of break you have been looking for, from your hectic schedule!

A centre for ideas, art & more

Though much of the furniture adorning this palace belongs to an era gone by, the rooms were refurbished and converted into a museum in 1988, as the Nehru Centre for Arts and Sciences was inaugurated. It is a centre that promotes new ideas, has a library and displays exhibits on science, technology and folk art, among other things.

Memories resisting collapse!

Located near the river Khan, this three-storeyed palace's existence is a blend of an Italian villa and a French chateau and it is one of the surviving manifestations of the Maratha rulers- the Holkars. It is believed that the gates of this palace were shipped from London and are a replica of those adorning the facade of Buckingham Palace. Further, the rooms of this palace have painted ceilings, grand chandeliers and decor, which is reportedly inspired by that of Versailles Palace.

Knock Knock

A place that will calm your mind and lift your spirits, the Lal Bagh Palace is as grand as palaces can be. So if you like to delve into history, then you will definitely appreciate your time spent in the precinct of this grand and royal building!
