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*.

*I find myself emphasising this aspect a lot because I was scarred by what I saw in some other palaces in India where the grandeur was borrowed from Europe and it was clearly a tragic case of “wannabe like the rulers“. Apologies.
