UMAID BHAWAN PALACE, JODHPUR

Unsurpassed by any other private residence in its grandeur, Umaid Bhawan Palace is the largest private residence in the world. Former residence of Maharaja Umaid Singh, it took 13 years to complete this edifice. The palace has been taken over by Welcome group to cater to the needs of contemporary tourists.

Perched atop Chittar hill, Umaid Bhawan Palace offers excellent view of the surroundings. The palace is spread in 26 acres and has properly laid-out gardens. Designed by Henry Vaughan Lanchester, a worthy rival of Edward Lutyens, Umaid Bhawan is a popular landmark in the sprawling city of Jodhpur.

Accommodation

There is a choice of 94 rooms and suites. Each room appointed with the furniture originally created for the Palace. Surpassing the splendor of the other guest rooms are the Regal Suites - originally used by Maharaja Umaid Singh and his Maharani. In the foyer leading to these suites is a musical fountain made entirely of English Crystal. Some of the old retainers of the royal household are still there to serve the needs of present day guests with the gracious hospitality that has always been a unique hallmark of the Palace.

Dining

The multi-cuisine restaurant, both vegetarian and non-vegetarian is undoubtedly a delight to the taste buds. The savor which pulls its visitors towards it every time. The sumptuous buffet is laid out daily for lunch and dinner at the Marwar Hall.

As the sun sets and moonlit night falls one can enjoy a drink at the Trophy Bar. For groups, there are the specially arranged theme parties with the folk music of the desert on the ramparts of the Mehrangarh Fort or the 'flaming torch' dinner on the illuminated lawns of the Palace..
