Hotel Basant Vihar Palace


Basant Vihar Palace, Bikaner- Basant Vihar Palace was built because of a “fanciful desire” of His Highness Maharaj Sri Ganga Singh Ji, a connoisseur of architecture and one blessed with an artistic sense. It was designed by him to be a separate pleasure garden adjoining the Zanana Bagh ( Royal Ladies’ Garden ) of Lalgarh Palace. In 1993, the house of Bikaji converted this masterpiece of architecture in to a heritage hotel – Hotel Basant Vihar Palace. An endevour to offer tourists a true flavour of history and royal living ( as opposed to the usual star-category hotels ), Hotel Basant Vihar Palace today, remains a ‘garden of eternal spring’.
