Jawahar Niwas Palace
It was in 1156 that Maharawal Jaisalsinghji, abandoned his old capital at Lodurva to establish a new citadel on the Trikuta Hill. In doing so he fulfilled an ancient prophecy: Lord Krishna, head of the Yadav clan of which the Bhatis are a sub-clan, had foretold that some day one of this descendants would build his kingdom atop the hill.
Within this ancient city, Maharawal Shalivahansinghji, 39th ruler of Jaisalmer initiated the building of a new palace in 1899. The resplendent elegance of Jawahar Niwas took final shape under successor. Maharawal Jawaharsinghji. The graceful, dusky gold sandstone palace typifies Rajput architecture, while the wealth of intricately carved jharokhas and chhatris are a tribute to the craftsmen of the region.
As the royal guest house, the palace has hosted royalty and British viceroys. The first prime minister of India, as well as the first president have both stayed here. Today, under Maharawal Brijrajsinghji, 43rd head of the royal house of Jaisalmer, Jawahar Niwas opens its doors as an exclusive heritage hotel.
Renovated with style and distinction, the palace offers every modern comfort and amenity. That is not to say that the past has been swept away. It makes its presence felt with quiet dignity, not only in the regal magnificence that surrounds you, but in graceful little details that creep up on you, reminiscing upon of glory past.
