Jee Ri Haveli, Jodhpur
Welcome to Jee Ri Haveli
Many times people have dreamt of staying in a huge royal palace on the seashore,on the banks of a river or at least a place facing the water reservoir. There is such a place at GULAB SAGAR in JODHPUR. The 19th Century sandstone place built on a hillock facing GULAB SAGAR is one of such places that is definitely going to win your heart.
It is very finely carved with latticed windows that allow the soft, cool breeze to blow into the interiors of the place. The embankments of the lake in front of the place have a domed structure that offers a fabulous view of the lake encircled by hills and an artificial cascading waterfall. It is a part of Jodhpur but enjoys the calmness away from the city crowd.
The rooms and suites create an ambience that make you feel as if you are staying in a royal palace. You can even a walk through the bridge and also get to see black diamond fish and ducks on the lake.
A hotel with a difference, Jee Ri Haveli combines the traditional Marwar style with contemporary comfort. The hotel offers 9 elegantly furnished air-conditioned and non air conditioned rooms with attached balconies offering tranquil sights of Gulab Sagar.
This is ‘Jee Ri Haveli’ speaking. Though I don’t believe in boasting about myself, I want to share all my sweet and sour experiences with you, experienced not only by me but a few historic people too. So please listen! Don’t go! Lend your ears to me.
Marwar’s (Mandore’s) mighty Rathore ruler Rao Jodhaji considered the hills of Chidiyanath Ji safe and secured from all points. As a result, laid the foundation of a city named Jodhpur on 12th of May 1459 in the foothills of the Fort.
Following the tradition of Rathore rulers, Maharaja Shri Vijaysingh Ji, who was crowned in the year 1950, proved to the most capable and efficient ruler. He ruled for about 40 year and during his rule the city witnessed major aesthetic changes. Inspired and influenced by his wife, Maharani Gulabrai’s, spiritual and religious beliefs many beautiful temples were built. Examples of these being Gangashyam Ji, Bal Krishna, Kunj Bihari and a few other memorable artistic buildings like Mahila Bagh, the Clock Tower and Fathesagar saw their origin. In the year 1792 the water body Gulab Sagar was constructed in the memory of Maharani Sahiba.
The administrators working for these rulers also did not stay behind. Following in the same track they too introduced richness into the community by constructing artistic buildings like Pokran’s Haveli, Riyan’s Haveli and Nimaj’s Haveli.
The bedrooms are air-conditioned, spacious, well appointed and exquisitely decorated. Our few rooms have a balcony where one can sit to take in the fresh air and unspoiled view of Gulab Sagar Lake. The hotel is situated within walking distance of the Clock Tower.
The lake facing Jee Ri Haveli is within convenient walking distance of the main attractions of Old City as well as the shops, yet the location is tranquil and ideal for relaxation. There are fountains on the lake which start from 7pm to 10pm.
If you prefer the outdoors, then read, relax or dine in the Roof Top Restaurant.
