The Baradari Palace may be one of the more modest Palaces of Patiala, but it certainly scores high on passion and dedication that brought it back from obscurity.
The Baradari Palace is a white, colonnaded building, centered on a rectangular Sikh-Mughal-style, twelve door pavilion or baradari which gave its name to a splendid garden commissioned by the then ruler Maharaja Rajinder Singh. It was designed in 1876 by Kaur Sahib Ranbir Singh, the younger brother of the Maharaja. Not as ostentatious as the other palaces of Patiala, it is nonetheless significant as a piece of Colonial architecture.
As Patiala has been our hometown, it is a matter of pride that a heritage hotel has enhanced the image of this city further on.
A charming old world experience. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay, and will be sure to be back. The ambience, charm, service and food were all excellent. Your bread (home-made) for breakfast was wonderful! Many thanks again!
The rooms are luxurious without being cluttered, their relative emptiness allowing the eye to absorb details like the wood louvered ceilings and the arched doors with their old brass latches. A gloriously sunlit pillared patio, laid out as an informal dining area, looks out over the Baradari Garden, which itself has long been parceled off for the benefit of the Patiala public.
