The Rampur palace is one of the most well maintained palaces of the area. It is huge, with well laid out gardens, rich wealth of trees and the ambiance of serenity around. The most fascinating aspect of the palace is its neatness and the architectural variety. It has both the European design and the Indian impact. The structure is wooden and the galleries, the stylish conical roof and the white painted eaves that look like pearls hanging from the roof arc typically colonial. The front door is white and the Belgium glass work is beautiful. Inside, the palace has unmatched glasswork, stained glass windows of different colors and fine woodwork. The palace was built in 1917 during the time of Raja Padam Dev Singh and is rightly called Padam Palace. It houses a rich library. Since it is the private residence of Shri Virbhadra Singh, it is not possible to visit it without permission.
