Photograph of the palaces at Lashkar near Gwalior in Madhya Pradesh, from the Lee-Warner Collection, photographed by Deen Dayal in 1882. This is a panoramic view composed of two prints, looking over the country from the fort, towards the huge Jai Vilas Palace. In 1754 Gwalior became the base of the Scindias, the most powerful of the Maratha clans. Jai Vilas Palace was built by the immensely rich and powerful Gwalior raja, Jayaji Rao Scindia (1843-86). It was designed by Lieutenant-Colonel Sir Michael Filose in a mixed style of architecture incorporating Doric, Tuscan, Corinthian, Palladian and European influences. Constructed in sandstone and painted a brilliant white, it is one of the grandest palaces in India.
