Another one for the mural series that I am trying to put up.
This is from the Maratha Palace, Thanjavur. The ceiling and walls are elaborately painted with floral motifs and celestial nymphs in black and white. Brightly painted central panel shows Rama and Sita flanked by the 'vanar sena' on this mural. 
Almost all walls and ceiling of darbar hall and adjoining rooms are decorated with such art in Maratha Palace. The palace was originally built by Nayak kingdom but it fell to Maratha empire and served as official residence to Bhonsle family even after losing the kingdom to British.
