  • Wow, words cannot tell the story. It is a beautiful piece of art and such a grand dedication to God. The chapel holds concerts from time to time and has such a peaceful feeling about it.  more »
  • A grand architecture commensurate with the palace grandeur, this chapel looks every bit of the royal usage at one point of time.  more »

  • Royal chapel with magnificent vaulted ceilings. Evolved with the palace. Fifth chapel of the palace, important for royal events like marriages etc. Integral part if the Royal life.
  • It is off limits to normal visitors and can only be visited as part of a guided tour. Normal visitors can only view it through a small door in one of the rooms on the upper floor. As expected, the entrance gets pretty crowded but it is worthwhile to wait for your turn and take a few photos. Unfortunately only the upper floor and the ceiling of the chapel can be viewed from here.
