The palace is illuminated on Saturdays and Sundays at around 7 pm. I believe Sundays it is lit up for longer (maybe 1 1/2-2 hours). As for weekdays, during festival times and around the year the days/times change a bit. I think during both Dussehra and Diwali the palace is lit up every night.

Guys....Is tripod allowed in the Compound to take pictures during the palace illumination?
I understand that camera is not allowed once you are inside the palace.

But can someone tell me they allow tripod outside in the complex compound?

Thanks
Arnab

They are now not lighting it up on Saturdays, power crisis in state, as didnt see it lit up on 2 consecutive Saturdays this summer .

but yes, sundays it was lit .

Can you please clarify if vistors are allowed till 8 PM in the palace as I heard that vistors time is 10am to 5.30 pm only.
Can you please clarify?
