Umaid Bhavan Palace And Museum - Review

A former palace and one of the most extravagant residences of the world, this palace is situated atop a hill and is also called Chittar palace because of the extensive use of the Chittar stone in its construction. Built during the early 20th century over a period for 15 years will marvel you with the Indo-Saracen architectural style and grand décor like none other.

With 347 rooms including a cinema, this was the largest private residence in the world at that time designed by Henry Lanchester and decorated by English and polish designers. After the spectacle of the 32m (105-ft.) central dome in the Palm Court (where you really need to pause and let your eyes drink it all in), you'll want to spend some time exploring the various public spaces (decorated in Art Deco furniture and fittings), swamping up and down the sweeping marble staircases, and heading down to the spa and hypnotic indoor pool which will transport you back to the 1940s with its bold blue zodiac-sign mosaics. The construction of the building is mortar less and incorporates 100 wagon loads of Makrana marble and Burmese teak in the interior.

One third of the palace is held by the royal family as a residence and the rest is converted into a grand hotel, one of the finest in Jodhpur. A small part is converted into a museum which displays the collection of photos showing the elegant art Deco design of the palace interior. The museum also has beautifully crafted weapons; an array of stuffed leopards; an enormous banner presented by Queen Victoria to Maharaja Jaswant Singh II in 1877; and a fantastic clock collection, including specimens shaped like windmills and lighthouses. Look out for some of the maharaja’s highly polished classic cars displayed on the lawn in front of the museum and ask the attendants to show the Raja Rani suit which are an example of the burlesque lifestyle of the Rajput royals.

  • "The highly majestic from the outside. World best hotel which is not accessible for the public. The museum is just about 30% of the whole building though they have a nice collection of clock. The car collection is very limited. Nothing much here. One hour would be quite enough."

  • The grandeur is just amazing. It is a architectural marvel. If you are in the city, this is a must visit. Don't miss going to the place. It has an interesting history attached to it. And then there's a big big green ground. The place is amazing during winter season. The place also provides residence. Which is obviously costly. You can book the rooms online too.

  • Must must visit place. It was best historical place I ever seen. So beautiful palace. Well maintained. Museum was very good 👌🏾. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND IT FOR TOURISTS.

  • Royal Heritage Empire... Immensely happy to b here for our anniversary.. A perfect place to fall in for.. From welcome to exit.. Everything done by there team was to say tat thy care for us.. It was a day filled with moments of love n happiness..to cherish Al our life.. Thank u team Umaid for ur lovely gesture 😊

  • A royal experience. This place has simply no words to describe it. Grand will be an understatement for the scale of this mighty palace. Everything here is exquisite. We had dinner here and the highlight would definitely be the home made Rose-Petal ice cream, the best ice cream of my life! Do not miss out on it!
