Umaid Bhawan Palace, Jodhpur
Umaid Bhawan Palace, an impressive and magnificent golden-yellow sandstone edifice in the heart of Jodhpur, stamps a commanding presence. Set amidst 26 acres of lush gardens, the Art Deco style palace was the last of India’s great palaces and was one of the largest private residences in the world. A part of the palace is still the residence of the royal family and another section houses a museum displaying a range of antiques from Jodhpur’s royal past.
Designed by the renowned Edwardian architect Henry Lanchester and embellished with exotic murals of the self-exiled Polish artist Stefan Norblin, the palace is a blend of Eastern and Western architectural influences. The luxurious bathtubs, swimming pool, murals and gardens add to its beauty to its majestic architecture. Among the finest palace hotels in the world, Umaid Bhawan Palace offers guests a privileged royal lifestyle experience. The airport is 5 kms away, and the railway station 5 kms.
