An architectural tribute to the history of Jaisalmer is Badal Vilas, also known as Mandir Palace, the current residence of the Royal Family. This multi-storied structure, also referred to as the Cloud Palace, is located near Amar Sagar Gate and consists of a complex of buildings with elaborately carved facades. Rising out of the Cloud Palace is the Tazia Tower, a multi-tiered tower built by Muslim stone-carvers. Tazia Tower was built in the 20th century as a gift to the people and rulers of Jaisalmer. Presently, part of the palace is used as a hotel and restaurant, though it still retains many of the galleries and paintings of the bygone era.
