Built by Bundela King of Orchha in Madhya Pardesh, during Mughal period. The palace is located near the foothill of the left-wing of the Aurangabad Caves. The name Soneri Mahal came up as the walls of the palace are adorned with golden paintings. The palace building is made of stone and lime and has a high plinth. It is a two-storeyed spacious building, constructed in typical Rajput style. This historic palace has now been converted into a museum that houses a variety of ancient Indian dresses, pottery and remains of local palaces and antiques of daily use. Also, a number of sculptures and reliefs from the local excavations are on display.
