Take a trip back through the ages - to the time when Rajasthan was known as Rajputana - the Land of the Rajas. Their Palaces are there for you to enjoy. In many cases, they have been converted into comfortable hotels, still run by the present day descendants of these royal families, retaining their graceful and elegant lifestyle. Be a part of it. Stay in spacious rooms with four poster beds, beautifully decorated with Art Deco furniture. Often you will be sleeping in suites once occupied by the rulers of this state.

Be waited on hand and foot, where all facilities, old and new, are at your disposal. Let yourself be pampered and feel special. Travel from a 16th century Palace to a 14th century fort, a 17th century hunting lodge or Haveli. Delight in having drinks while sitting on the ramparts, watching the sun set over the plains of Rajasthan which can only add to the unique experience of being here!

Enter through arched gateways protected by mile high wooden gates and cannons. Your host in many cases will be a descendant of the great warrior kings who protected this land from invaders from the north. Their staff will arrange outings for you to visit their villages, meet with the local people, or enjoy the wildlife, which often surrounds their properties. They will organise picknicks for you, tea in the dunes, a ride out by jeep or horse and bring you back to their ancestral homes for more delights.

Deogarh Mahal, Rajasthan

Some of the palaces have been beautifully restored and you can visit the public rooms. Step back and re-live the glorious past. Walk the grand staircases, admire the hunting trophies and sepia photographs of polo matches and tiger hunts. Visit the audience chambers where the Maharajas would come to meet with the public or with their ministers. These rooms are resplendent with delicate and gilded paintings, murals and fine mirror work known as meenakari, sometimes decorated with tiles from Holland and glasswork from Belgium.

As well as palaces there are the Havelis. The word is taken from the Persian meaning "surrounded" or "enclosed place". Because of their architectural form, the Havelis are built around courtyards, which provided the families with privacy and seclusion from the outside world. They were built either as a main home or some distance away as retreats or hunting lodges.

The words cannot capture the essence of the way of life they represent. Only by experiencing it yourself can you get an insight into what it would have meant to be born into this way of life. Treat yourself to the experience, to Royal Rajasthan, to India, another world.
