Location: Behind Jagdish Temple, Udaipur, Rajasthan
The havelis and palaces in India, not only are the the most priced possession of India’s history but are also a bright opportunity for the people to re-live the royalty and the glory of the past. Most of the palaces built by the rulers have now been converted into heritage hotels, thereby, making it possible for the common people to relish their charm. The most romantic city of India, Udaipur, boasts of housing the maximum number of heritage hotels with stupendous beauty. One of such havelis that I fondly cherish is the Jagat Niwas Palace.
Built in the early 17th century, the Jagat Niwas Palce is located on the eastern banks of Lake Pichola. The name of the haveli was changed a couple of times before naming it as Jagat Niwas Palace. Originally the haveli was called as Titoda and later as Banderwara Haveli. It was converted into a heritage hotel in the year 1987 by Kr. Devraj Singh, who after seeing its terrible condition decided to renovate it. The haveli boasts of a spectacular architecture built in Mewari style. It is now one of the most renowned heritage hotels in Udaipur.
Traditional in its magnificence but modern in its facilities, the Jagat Niwas Palace is one of the finest places to stay at. It has 29 lavish rooms embellished with antique furniture giving it a royal look. Beautiful jharokas all around the haveli let you enjoy a scenic view outside. The heritage hotel also offers some leisure facilities such as ayurvedic massages, folk puppets, horse riding, desert safaris and lake side restaurants with delicious food of various cuisines. The mesmeric elegance of the hotel along with the view of the lake outside proves to be a treat to the eyes.
So, the next you plan on visiting Udaipur, do consider the Jagat Niwas Palace as an option for a memorable stay!
