Taj Rambagh Palace , Jaipur

The first view of the palace as you enter

We landed by at Rambagh Palace by chance. We had gone to Rambagh only for a tea trip but we rather ended up shifting there eventually. I have to say that it was the Best decision of the trip. We had such less time in hand but our Jaipur (Rajasthan) trip would have been incomplete without our stay at this magnificent place.

Just like Umaid Bhawan, this property is also managed by Taj Hotels. From the website ” Rambagh Palace is a living legend in Jaipur. Built in 1835 on a modest scale for the queen’s favourite handmaiden Kesar Badaran, and later refurbished as a royal guesthouse and hunting lodge, the mansion was renamed Rambagh, after the then reigning Maharaja Sawai Ram Singh II. ” Read more about this iconic place HERE

We reached there in the evening. It was almost the dinner time. We luckily got a beautiful garden facing Historical Suite. Right across our room there were Rajastani dancers dressed up in stunning red poshaks dancing to keep the guests entertained during the dinner time. That view is still fresh in my mind and it was one was one of the most beautiful sights I have ever seen.

I don’t even have to say a word about the food. It’s top class across all the Taj Properties that we have come across so far. No matter what you pick from the menu, you can be rest assured that the quality would be maintained. The food was served in the finest cutlery and silverware.

The next morning I woke up early and took a long walk across the property. The air was clean. The sight of dozens of peacocks and peahens running around the palace was priceless. And the endless ‘namashkars‘ that you get from the staff does not let the smile fade from your face.

We had a great breakfast and lunch. Then I went to Jiva Spa (review coming up) to get a facial done. After packing our stuff, we took a super fun carriage ride. :))

I am just sad that we got only a day to experience the beauty of the place. If we could have, we would have extended the day. But we had to return to meet some important deadlines. But oh well! Hope to visit the Rambagh again. The staff bid us farewell with lovely stuff from Forest Essentials and a set of pretty mirror work coasters.

Sharing the photo journey with you that we captured in whatever little time we had during our stay. 🙂

The Chandni Chowk. On the full moon night you can see the reflection of moon in the water. Hence it is called Chandni Chowk. : )

  6. Hey Rati,

    Such stunning pics.. my best compliments to Sanjeevji 🙂 And the place is indeed grand. I and my husband are already planning for our next vacation. We are confused between Laddakh and Rajasthan. Your pics compel us to choose the latter 😀

    Everything looks so gorgeous Rati (including you 🙂 ). I’ve really enjoyed the Rajasthan posts these past couple of days!
    Love all the colors and the architecture…this is what firanghs generally imagine India to be like 😛 😛
    Loved loved the traditional attire on you…and the laakh bangles…! Didn’t know Sanjeev was Rajput; is this your first time visiting his home state?
    I had no idea that Choki Dhani was a resort! People had recommended it to me and I always thought it was a real real village! Seeing those pictures, it felt like I was there. Thanks for sharing this here <3

    • Rati says:

      his home states are actually Uttar Pradesh and MP . I have been to MP. If this is am impression that firangis have, I am mighty happy about it. 😀 Most movies such as slumdog only show the slum part of it but there is so much more to explore in India. :))

      awwww glad you liked the pics. Totally loved sharing them. 🙂

    Lovely piccies!! The place looks great and the pictures are so good! We too had planned our road trip to Rajasthan on new year and loved it totally 🙂 It got me wondering why these pigeons just refuse to leave the palaces….I saw them there in each of the palaces I visited be it Junagarh fort or Bikaner fort or any other for for that matter 😛

  14. Preethi R says:
