World’s 26 Greatest Palaces

1. Mohatta Palace, Karachi, Pakistan

The Word PALACE is derived from the Latin name Palātium, for Palatine Hill, one of the seven hills in Rome. A palace is a grand residence, especially a royal residence or the home of a head of state or some other high-ranking dignitary, such as a bishop or archbishop. In many parts of Europe, the term is also applied to relatively large urban buildings built as the private mansions of the aristocracy. Many historic and greatest palaces are now put to other uses such as parliaments, museums, hotels or office buildings (wikipedia). This post features a collection of 26 greatest palaces around the world.

  1. People always like celebrities, but I think those in uniform deserve more respect. They defend our country and safeguard our policy. Join Se ekuniform c/ o /m, show your love and respect to our military heroes.

  2. On Mothers day there should be special information & tribute to Mothers. A special for those who have now no Mothers (passed away).May Almighty Allah Subhan-O-Taala bless them happiness & Junnah(Paradise). Aameen.

  3. Actually, there is a mistake photo number 3 – The Palace of Justice, Malaysia. That palace of justice is actually in Bucharest, Romania. The building was inaugurated in 1895, and the architect was Albert Ballu, who also made the plans for “Palais de Justice” in Paris.

    Thank you so much for visit and correction. We have changed the location of Palace of Justice.
    Cheers 🙂

  5. Not sure if it matters, but #4 “The Crystal Palace” is actually in Madrid, Spain; at the Buen Retiro Park. The confusion might arise from it being inspired by a Crystal Palace in London which burned down in 1936.

  6. We were in Brussels in October ’09 too. Great photo! We didn’t venture to this area thgouh. Before seeing the picture and just seeing your post’s title, I had expected the Mannekin Pis statue (my kids’ favorite statue in Brussels). =)

  7. Vince and Latasha – Josh you are truly amazing in what you do. This is only the prveiew and we can’t wait to see what all the pictures look like. It was a true blessing that we found you. We can’t share enough how great it was to work with you on the day of our wedding. I would be honored to refer all our friends and family to you. Thanks for making our day perfect! PS: Really the chair picture with the bride?

  8. My 2 best girlfriends and I had our phtooshoot just yesterday. Amy and Byron are so AMAZING! From the moment we got there we were excited and felt very comfortable. Getting our hair and make up done was so fun and we felt beautiful. We snacked and drank champagne as Amy assisted us with accessories and made us feel great about our outfit choices. From the moment Byron started shooting, the photos already looked fantastic, I can’t wait to see the final result. These two truelly have vision. The set was beautiful and comfortable. I would recommend that you stop looking and go with this team You WILL NOT be disappointed!! We will use them again!

  11. Jen!!! These photos…haven’t even seen them all yet……and video of Tyler………FANTASTIC!! I’ve watched the video twice and got goosebumps both times! Your eye for finding the heart and soul of a person and catching it on film is amazing. I’m so pleased at how this session when for Tyler, and I’m proud of the wonderful talent you have.

  12. The over-all gain from Creatine is that it’s water based. As stated will help satiate the cells with water. If you look at how the body works, water is to your body like oil is to a car. So you will have over-all cleaner workouts. I’ve noticed an increase in strength after the soda was ditched completely.When cycling off creatine you will notice some strength loss, but over all, it will help with muscle growth.

  13. I was just seeking this info for some time. After 6 hours of continuous Googleing, at last I got it in your site. I wonder what’s the lack of Google strategy that do not rank this type of informative web sites in top of the list. Generally the top websites are full of garbage.

  14. diz:Olá Luís Filipe,Ainda bem que gostou da ideia. De facto, sozinhos e isolados acho que será muito difícil conseguir vingar nesta actividade. Se houver um espírito activo e colectivo isso ajuda a manter o entusiasmo e a aprender um pouco mais com a experiência de outros. Eu sei disso por experiência própria…

  15. Ppl please use a jnioter ONLY for edges! If you want a straight edge on each side of your lumber use a planer!! This technique is VERY dangerous and only used if you do not have access to a planer. This guy doesnt even have a kickback guard!! Expert Village fails again!!!
