Their palace is open to tourists on a regular basis, where one can view the various nooks and corners of the palace, and their intricate designs that are part of Rajasthani culture and decorum. Among the most interesting of features are the four gates in the area known as Pitam Niwas Chowk which are designed with motifs reminscent of specific seasons. In the northwest corner lies this particular gate – known as Leheriya (the gate of Waves) – with its Green colour symbolising the spring season, this doorway is dedicated to the Hindu God Lord Ganesha.
