Fateh Prakash Palace, Udaipur
Where once the Maharanas of Mewar held court, today you can hold forth
Maharana Fateh Singh, one of the greatest Maharanas of Mewar, ruled from 1884 to 1930. This palace, constructed during his reign as an exclusive venue for royal functions, has been meticulously preserved for discerning guests.
The Durbar Hall Sabhagaar, which is one of the main features of the hotel, is of historical significance as in 1909 Lord Minto, the Viceroy of India, laid its foundation stone: The hall was originally called Minto Hall in his honour.
Located on the eastern shores of the picturesque Lake Pichola, the palace seems to have floated straight out of a fairytale.
The history-soaked interiors, dotted with miniature paintings, portraits, royal artefacts and the armoury of the Mewar dynasty transport you to legendary times.
The suites and rooms decorated with replica paintings and period furniture from the toshakhanas or royal storerooms, cocoon you in velvety luxury as you soak in the ever-changing hues of the lake from large arched windows.
The Durbar Hall Sabhagaar and Crystal Gallery, resplendent with rare paintings and objects dart, connect you to a rich and authentic heritage.
