Laxmi Vilas Palace Bharatpur
Laxmi Vilas Palace was built in 1887 for Raja Raghunath Singh, the
younger brother of the then ruler of Bharatpur, Maharaja Ram Singh.
In 1994 our family home was converted into a hotel. Here at Laxmi
Vilas Palace you may relive the history of Bharatpur, feel the warm
hospitality extended to you by our present generation living in the
Palace. From our courtyard to our newly refurbished rooms, true old
style manner is preserved throughout.
We have maintained the lively fusion of Rajput and Mughal architecture
as well as "Brij" culture. In and around the Palace, a beautiful
setting is captured to provide our guests with the tranquility and
peace of a home away from home. At Laxmi Vilas Palace, our location
offers you a variety of day time sightseeing excursions which we can
personally arrange for you through our in house facilities. We look
forward to welcoming you at home.
This palace, inspite of the inroads of modernity, can boast of its
old aristocratic traditional style of living with two spacious courtyards
the second one reserved for the cozy privacy of the queens, the princess
and their bandis, its each beautiful room has broad opening on both
sides galleries and canopies in burjis (minarets).
All the spectacular glamour melts into the modern comforts and makes
the story memorable and delightful. Frescos, deftly portrayed with
bright shell herbal paints in the ceremonial room leave an everlasting
impression on the visitor. These wall painting depict Lilas of Lord
Krishna (super natural feats of Lord Krishna) the supreme deity of
Brij region where this palace is located.
The same tradition of the hospitality has been kept alive till the
present day. In 1994, a decision was taken to convert the Palace into
the hotel. The Laxmi Vilas Palace has been operational ever since.
