The fort like entrance, the archways and the stone-paved lawns take you back to the golden days of the 14th century Vijaynagara Empire.

The management however is ensuring that in the present Covid-era, all safety protocol is followed.

One of the most preferred options at the Kamala Pura Palace is the Jal Mahal inspired by the Zenana enclosure for royal women of the Vijaynagara empire.

It has its own separate dining, living and sleeping areas, and a royal sized bath with open courtyards.
