Taj Umaid Bhawan Palace

Umaid Bhawan Palace

Built between 1928 and 1943, Umaid Bhawan Palace is a magnificent piece of Rajasthan’s heritage, and a symbol of new Jodhpur. Home of the erstwhile Jodhpur royal family and currently the world’s sixth-largest private residence, the palace has one thing in common with the iconic Taj Mahal at Agra—the palm court marble used in its construction.   Perched on Chittar Hill, the highest point in Jodhpur, Umaid Bhawan Palace inspires with exotic views of the historical Blue City, vast sand dunes, and intimidating Mehrangarh Fort. The palace is conveniently located 20 minutes from the airport, close to the main shopping areas, and the Balsamand and Kalyana lakes.   The last of the great palaces of India, the property houses a family museum, as well as the resplendent Umaid Bhawan Palace. Set amidst 26 acres of lush gardens, with dancing peacocks and a subterranean Zodiac Pool, the luxury five-star Taj heritage hotel offers 70 utterly breathtaking Art Deco- style rooms and suites.   Tantalise your taste buds at Risala with authentic Rajasthani and Indian cuisine. Discover an array of European and Mediterranean delicacies at Pillars, set in a lovely colonnaded veranda. Unwind at the Trophy Bar with its unique hunting-themed décor and vast selection of alcoholic beverages and cigars.   Pamper yourself with rejuvenating signature treatments and therapies at the Jiva Grande Spa, or soothe your mind and body with yoga and meditation.Take a heritage walk and relive a fascinating bygone era brought to life through majestic monuments.   Soak in the original architecture of a fascinating bygone era and discover the rich history of a palace that has enjoyed actual royal company—Maharani BadanKanwar of Jodhpur having lived here. Stroll through the lush, landscaped Baradari Lawns, perfect for those who have always envisioned a fairy tale wedding.   Come, experience luxury like the royals did.

Umaid Bhavan Palace is a jem. One would miss half of Jodhpur if he/she did not come to see the Palace
We stayed between May 6th and May 8th. We were deeply impressed by the splendid design and decoration of the Palace. It is well maintained as a living palace as well. We had six meals/drinks at the Risala, Pillar restaurants and Trophy Bar (including breakfast, afternoon tea, dinner and drinks). Food quality is perfect, nice view at Pillars, and authentic atmosphere at Risala. Service is wonderful, we certainly admired the efforts and spirits of all the staffs, the managers. They always tried to make us feel home and comfort. The gentlemen from Palace service also welcomed me with a birthday cake and helped to put on a colorful turban which made memories at Rajasthan complete. Well done. Front desk manager (Ms. Alka) helped to make excellent plan and arrangement for our activities. Alka also arranged an evening rickshaw for us to make up some old city sightseeing which we missed to do during the day. The autos did a great job bringing us to some very old temples, also experience the old city lives. Mr. Amit the young and passionate man extended his palace tour for us and brought us to every corner and shared with us the palace fascinating stories. All the staffs are friendly and detailed. They even suggest us come back in cool seasons to tehwest for camel safari and camping experiences. We would definitely that and have revisit Umaid Palace in the future. I hesitated to share the following with you but I think it is important you are aware of some facts too... The only doubt and reservation we had after returning from our trip, we found the textiles we purchased from this shop called Maharani Textiles & Handicrafts, Tambacoo Bazar, Jodhpur 342002 (9…0) are of very average to poor qualities. Our guide Mr Kuldeep (arranged by the hotel) brought us there which we found about very poor review on googles later after our purchase. During our half day tour, Mr. Kuldeep basically toured us to the fort only and then brought us to this only shop in the old market. Mr Kuldeep claimed that he is a professor teaching at universities and made himself credible. And he seemed to know the shop owner well and speak highly of the shop. We then counted on his recommendations. We spent over USD 2200 at this shop and ended up with fake textile products. Thus, we would not recommend to anyone with Mr. Kuldeep and Maharani Textile. Unfortunately we did not have the time to look up on internet and be aware of it.
