Gujarat’s Lakshmi Vilas Palace outshines Buckingham Palace in size

In the heart of Gujarat, Lakshmi Vilas Palace is an architectural marvel and a testament to the legacy of the Gaekwads of Baroda. This huge property owned by the Gaekwad family has now acquired the title of the largest private residence in the world, surpassing even the famous Buckingham Palace of England.

This palace is spread over an astonishing area of 3,04,92,000 square feet. At the helm of this majestic property are HRH Samarjitsingh Gaekwad and his wife Radhikaraje Gaekwad, carrying the legacy of the Gaekwad dynasty into the modern age. Their preservation of this grand residence adds a contemporary chapter to its historic past.

Buckingham Palace is spread over 828,821 square feet, making Lakshmi Vilas Palace a unique architectural giant.

Mukesh Ambani’s Antilia has long held the title of the world’s most expensive home, estimated to be worth Rs 20,000 crore. However, when it comes to sheer size, Lakshmi Vilas Palace surpasses even this symbol of modern opulence. Antilia’s footprint covers an area of 48,780 sq ft, which is a fraction of the vast space of Gaikwad’s residence.

As soon as the news spread on Instagram, netizens flooded the comments. One wrote, “The Royal Maratha Family.” Another said, “And here I thought my 2000 square foot house was too big and difficult to handle.” A third said, “Pretty sure they’re visiting the house every week to memorize the map.”
