About the location: The 140-year old Tambekar Wada in the Raopura Area showcases three storeys of 19th century murals. The decaying but fascinating building is a window into erstwhile Maratha architecture. Built around a courtyard, there are two wings of the home – the front and the residence. Delicate woodwork and weathered paintings embellish the home. The paintings are done in the tempera on dry lime with the use of water-based pigments.
Brief History: The building was the former residence of the Diwan of Baroda, Bhau Tambekar. It later took on the role of a school which was subsequently shifted.
