Bhawan Palace can qualify for several firsts: the largest private
residence in the world, the finest extant example of art-deco, the only
palace to have paintings from the Ramayana painted by a Polish artist,
the first to use air-conditioning, electricity and elevators, and the
most impressive for its size and dimensions. Yet, that should be hardly
strange, for the architect, H.V. Lancaster, who planned it, wanted it to
rival the Viceregal Lodge (now Rashtrapati Bhawan) then being planned by
Sir Edward Lutyens in the new capital at New Delhi, also then under
Attractions Within The Heritage Palace - Hotel Umed Bhavan Palace
For starters, Umaid Bhawan Palace in Jodhpur is a formal building that
is perfectly symmetrical, and its 347 rooms offer few concessions to
Rajput architecture other than such devises as concealed corridors and
balconies for the women of the 'Zenana', and the use of courtyards
around which the several wings of the palace are arranged. Built at the
height of the art deco period, there are several embellishments on the
outer walls, such as the eagle carved from sandstone. All original
fittings have been retained.
While many of its accoutrements are in use, others have been placed in
a museum within the premises. Here, you can find out for yourself the
fine china used by the royal family, trace the history of the clocks and
telephones that were once put to use in the different rooms, and
discover a bit of your own past in a nostalgia driven journey through a
time not so long ago.
Fittingly, you can end the journey in a room of your own, one of 95, in
Hotel Umed Bhawan Palace.
