Umaid Bhavan Palace-Luxury at its best!

 

Umaid Bhawan Palace built, between 1928 and 1943,  is  one of the largest private residences in the world – set amidst 26 acres of lush gardens.

 

Named after Maharaja Umaid Singh, grandfather of the present Maharaja of Jodhpur, this golden – yellow sandstone monument was conceived on the grandest possible scale, in the fashionable Art Deco Style of that time. After 15 years in construction, the 347 – room palace was finally completed in 1943 – and has served as the principal residence of the Jodhpur royal family since.

 

The  Palace has in its luxurious fold 64 rooms and suites. Stroll through the private museum, test your skills on the marbled squash courts or enjoy a game of billiards in the panelled recreation room.
