Umaid Bhawan Palace - A Taj Luxury Hotel

23

Description

“The Palace was built, between 1928 and 1943, for H.H. Maharaja Umaid Singh ji, Grand Father of our present Maharaja, who had benevolently commissioned a new palace in 1923 to replace Mehrangarh Fort as the symbol of new Jodhpur and to give employment to the people of Marwar during the period’s great droughts and famines.

Perched high above the desert capital of Jodhpur, Umaid Bhawan Palace is the last of the great palaces of India and one of the largest private residences in the world – set amidst 26 acres of lush gardens.

Named after Maharaja Umaid Singh, grandfather of the present Maharaja of Jodhpur, this golden-yellow sandstone monument was conceived on the grandest possible scale, in the fashionable Art Deco Style of that time.  After 15 years in construction, the 347 – room palace was finally completed in 1943 – and has served as the principal residence of the Jodhpur royal family since.

In the finest tradition of Rajput hospitality, Umaid Bhawan Palace offers its guests a taste of royal living, once the sole preserve of princes and kings.”

Get a guide, you might miss a few things around like the gold ceiling, using silver for entire flooring between each mosaics, the palace flag hoisted when king is inside the palace and hoisted down when hes out.
Make sure guide stays and explains, our guide ripped us of 250 for not even a 30 mins explanation, once he took money he was keen on letting us go and get the next customer.
Highly lavish place with huge antique collections.
Still the place runs with old electrical devices such as ac and fan regulators.
Only 10% is open for visitors, 20% still the royal family owns and the rest is heritage hotel.
If you are a car fanatico do visit the heritage car museum which has cars like RR PHANTOM I and II, cadillac which caught my eyes but has only 10 for display out of the 52 cars which is owned by royal family(as told by guide)

his place is a landmark in Jodhpur, a hot spot for all tourists visiting the city. Cheap tickets are available, along with tour guides and audio guides.

The youngest palace in the world, they'll treat you like you yourselves are royals. It personifies grandeur and chivalry.

Naturally, all this makes it a very expensive stay. Even the restaurants themselves are the most expensive in the city. But if you can afford it, do not miss this. Come here to spend a magical night that you will never forget!
