Jaipur | Taj Rambagh Palace
Taj Rambagh Palace, Jaipur
The glorious Taj Rambaugh Palace Hotel has a distinguished past. Part of it was first built in 1835, as a home for the queen’s favorite handmaiden. It was enlarged later to serve as a royal guesthouse and hunting lodge for the Maharaja Sawal Ram Singh II. Over the course of the next century, the dwelling was transformed into a breathtaking palace, on forty-seven acres of manicured gardens. The real heyday of the palace was in the Thirties, when the Maharaja and his stunningly beautiful wife, Rajmata Gayatri Devi, entertained the nobility and aristocracy of the world. The “Jewel of Jaipur,” as it was called, remained the home of the Royal family until 1957, when it was converted into a hotel.
Jodhpur | Taj Umaid Bhawan Palace
Taj Umaid Bhawan Palace, Jodhpur
In 1929, Maharaja Umaid Singh conjured up the idea to build a palace, in order to give jobs to the villagers in a time of drought and famine. (He’s a highly revered historical figure for this generous scheme.) It took fifteen years and three thousand workers to build the art deco-style residence, and it was, as it happens, the last royal palace built before India’s independence from Great Britain, in 1947.
The palace is a hotel but it’s also still a royal residence—Maharaja Gaj Singh II, the grandson of Maharaja Umaid Singh, lives on the premises, in a wing separate from the hotel—in the style to which he has been accustomed.
