Umaid Bhawan Palace, Jodhpur, Rajasthan

Umaid Bhawan Palace

Umaid Bhawan Palace is unabashedly the most magnificent palace in India. The palace built by Maharaja Umaid Singh who ruled from 1911-47 was the last expression of princely architectural extravaganza during the British Raj. Jodhpur Umaid Bhawan Palace was one of the last palaces to be built in India.
The attractions of the palace include the Throne Room (housing fascinating Ramayana murals), a wood-paneled library, a private museum; an indoor swimming pool, a Billiards room, tennis courts and marble squash courts. The Palace has now been converted into five star deluxe palace hotel. The Umaid Bhavan Palace of Rajasthan also houses a museum. On display, in the museum, are an array of weapons, stuffed leopards, clocks and a huge banner presented by Queen Victoria.
