India Heritage Hotels
India has always been proud of its diverse cultural heritage, which varies from food, language and clothes to way of living. An integral part of Indian culture is its historic monuments and heritage homes that have been converted now into heritage hotels. But, how a monument became a hotel, is an interesting revelation in itself.
Heritage hotels are not just home or a place to live in, they also have a historic significance of belonging to a particular era. Such as the Havelis and palaces of Rajasthan, Gujarat and Himachal Pradesh that tell the tales about the royal past of these regions and their exquisite architecture make them a masterpiece creation. Similarly, the heritage homes and mansions of Pondicherry and Goa, reveal the influence of their colonial rulers on their culture and lifestyles. Travel India and spend your vacation in Heritage Hotels in India and live like a Maharaja. The large Palaces, Forts & Havelis that were once the residences of the Maharajas & Rajas have been converted into Heritage Hotels of India.
