Raj Bhawan
 

Raj Bhawan, now the residence of the Governor, was once the residence of the Governor-General of India. Based on an idea of the then Governor-General, Marquis of Wellesley, the building was modeled to resemble Lord Curzon's ancestral home - Kedleston Hall. It is situated in a fine enclosure of 6 acres standing back of the Maidan. The throne of Tipu Sultan is inside the building and the room where it is placed is called the "Throne room". The splendid ballroom whose floor is of polished teak is also worth seeing.
