Live like a king in Rajasthan
The royal court
Noble landowners and ministers also built palaces and holiday homes, near the residences of maharajas, trying to emulate the opulent lifestyles of their leaders. Some of these residences are now hotels, including Samode Palace and Samode Bagh, Narain Niwas Palace, and Castle Kanota.
Tourism with a conscience
A characteristic feature of luxury accommodation in Rajasthan, as in the case of Ravla Bhenswara and Shahpura Bagh, is that the owner’s family receives and honours the customer as if they had been invited as a guest. The money raised through accommodation is used to maintain the building, and infrastructures in the local community, in addition to financing education and local craftspeople.
