Overview

The Royal Palace Kanker is a small but magnificent palace situated in the exceptionally beautiful and green surroundings of Kanker. Kanker is a district headquarter town, which was formerly a part of the famous Bastar district of Chhattisgarh. Located at about 140 km south of Raipur- the capital city of Chhattisgarh- Kanker is famous for its untouched forests, unique tribal villages and the last but not least the Royal Kanker Palace along with some fine century-old colonial buildings. The unique tribes of Kanker still practice age-old crafts and traditions and the region offers a different experience to its visitors.

Nice grounds but the building from the outside is nothing special. It all looks very staged. Definitely not a must see and Kanker is nothing special at all.

Kanker Palace is a real value to a discovery of this state. The architects are really amazing and the interiors are wonderful. Known very much for the richness of culture and customs. The history of the different communities and the landscape are seen here.
