Situated majestically on the Chittar Hill in Jodhpur, Umaid Bhawan Palace is a testament to India’s regal past and architectural grandeur. This magnificent edifice, with its golden-hued sandstone and expansive gardens, is not merely a palace but a living monument to the resilience and vision of Maharaja Umaid Singh. Constructed during a time of drought and famine, the palace provided much-needed employment to thousands of people. The palace’s Art Deco design is a tribute to a bygone era in all of its 347 rooms, including the royal residences, museum, and hotel.
