The Sawantwadi Palace

Sawantwadi - 2017-3

A walk around the charming old Palace building of Sawantwadi, in South Maharashtra just a few km from Goa.

The overall building layout and the minor accents are native to the region and therefore very appealing. The sense of identity is strongly rooted in its own heritage*.
