Petition to stop construction in front of historic Pratap Vilas Palace, Vadodara

Disturbingly for the city of Vadodara and it’s Royal Family, a decision has been taken to construct a multi-storey building in the historic Raja Baug or the garden overlooking the majestic Pratap Vilas Palace. This is to accommodate the National Rail and Transportation Institute and other offices. The markings on the ground have begun but construction is yet to start.

New concrete construction right in front of this 106-year- old heritage palace will certainly destroy the facade, landscape, scale, beauty and history of this landmark of Vadodara. The Pratap Vilas Palace estate also accommodates the ‘Oval Ground’ an open area, 90 degrees off Raja Baug. The same construction can be accommodated on this centrally situated open space. The city has already lost a historic and archeological jewel like Nazarbaug, let us not destroy another.

The royal family of Vadodara and Maharaja Fatesingh Museum appeals to all citizens of the city and the country to stand up against this decision.
