Ram Nagar Palace, Udhampur

 
The Purna Mahal was built by Raja Suchet Singh (AD 1801-1844). The palace is a fairly big complex of rooms rising to three storeys having high walls and watch towers at regular intervals. The walls of the rooms are decorated with stucco work and painted with floral designs. The wooden ceilings are also decorated.

Nawa Mahal complex was built by Raja Ram Singh, son of Raja Ranbir Singh. It comprises an inner courtyard surrounded by rooms with two entrances facing each other.

The Shish Mahal complex was built by Raja Ram Singh (AD 1801-1844). It comprises two forecourts having Burjis at corners. Behind these are halls and rooms flanked on either side of the central passage. To the left of the entrance are Darbar Hall, Shish Mahal and Rang Mahal. To the right is an arcaded verandah with rooms in the rear. The Darbar hall has scenes of mural paintings depicting themes from the Ramayana, Bhagwata and other Puranas, besides battle scenes connected with Raja Suchet Singh. Adjoining the Darbar hall is Shish Mahal with its walls decorated with fine glass work arranged in various designs and later lithographs. The walls of Rang Mahal adjoining Shish Mahal are decorated with mirrors and mural paintings arranged in panels depicting scenes of Nayikas, Raginis and Krishna-lila, besides hunting and court scenes.
