Balanced high above the desert capital of Jodhpur, Umaid Bhawan Palace, the golden-hued desert sandstone shrine is the last of the great palaces of India and one of the largest private residences in the world.
Fairly retained by the Taj Hotels, the palace was built by Maharaja Umaid Singh between 1928 and 1943. Singh bespoke the project to the British architect Henry Vaughan Lanchester, who looked to the work of his colleague Sir Edwin Lutyen—the architect behind Rashtrapati Bhavan and the India Gate—for motivation. The palace was built to create job opportunities for farmers and workers during a one-year famine that had hit the area.
The palace room at the hotel costs Rs34,000 and prices go up to a handsome Rs5,00,000 for the grand presidential one-bedroom suite. The glorious architecture inspired by the European and Western style and astounding lavish interiors following the Deco Art Style exude flamboyance and extravagance all over, the Umaid Bhawan Palace offers 4 top-notch indoor venues and 6 splendid outdoor venues to exchange the vows.
Accommodation: This grand venue has a total of 67 rooms with 30,000 - 35,000 INR per night.
Food: The Umaid Bhawan Palace offers a spectrum of mouth water delicacies from the Indian and international kitchen leaving your guests with an irreproachable zing of flavors.
