I love Rajasthan and is palaces, forts, its colours- jaipurs pink & jodhpurs blue... This post is soo beautiful archana! What an absolute treat it would be to live here for a few days! The photographs are to die for- I love the whole white pristine feel.

The palaces, once upon a free access to common man is now accessible to only somebody with deep pockets. Return of the colonial Raj in a way.

Arch at Rang said...

Vineeta- Thanks:-) Yes love the bright colours of Rajasthan:-)

Anrosh- You are right...but the other way of looking at it is that it being converted into heritage hotel helps in retaining the grandeur and helps in the maintenance:-)

Vinita said...

This is certainly one of the best hotels we have stayed in so far.

WOW Arch!
This is so amazing. One of the most spectacular places I have ever seen!!
Just pristine. Even looking at the photographs makes me feel calm!

designflute said...

The decor of this place is so calming.just the right amount of colours, not at all overdone!
I part with Anrosh's comment then again I am nodding to what you say.
if it would have been a heritage site or even a museum, by now it would have lost all its grandeur!

Arch at Rang said...

Nice blog! I had the opportunity to visit this palace several years back while traveling with "Palace on Wheels." It was odd to see India from a tourist's perspective, but lovely. There are so many gorgeous palaces and forts in Rajasthan and I'm glad you've highlighted this one.
