A palace turned into a luxury hotel
A rudimentary seven-storey fort palace in Rajasthani architecture was first built by Raghudev Singh II in the 1760s which was further beautified with the addition of Durbar Hall and Sheesh Mahal area during the first wedding in the Royal family.
Two centuries later, it was abandoned in ruins. In 1984, it was bought by Poddars, an industrial family from the Shekhawati region who undertook a restoration that took over 7 years. The interior spaces were redesigned in minimalistic style by interior designer Rajiv Saini, to turn this palace into an all suite luxury hotel, complete with a spa in the year 2000.
