Umaid Bhawan Palace, Jodhpur

Umaid Bhawan Palace, JodhpurNestled within the depths of the Thar desert, Jodhpur today is known as one of the three sculptured cities of Rajasthan, each known for its distinct flavour. Jodhpur is flanked on the western side by the Mehrangarh fort and on the eastern side by the stately sandstone palace of Umaid Bhawan. Its temples, monuments and gardens depicts a multi faceted grandeur.

The Umaid Bhawan Palace built by Maharaja Umaid Singh who ruled from 1911 to 1947, was the last expression of princely architectural extravaganza during the British Raj. It was in 1925 that Umaid Singh commissioned the firm of Lancaster and Lodge to build the palace. The foundation stone was laid in 1929 at Chittar Hill- a sight dictated by astrological considerations. "Striking indeed is the impression of romance and dignity which this monument conveys" said Col. Windham at the time of its inauguration.

Also known as Chittar Palace, the Palace built by Maharaja Umaid Singh is a splendid example of Indo-colonial architecture. A unique feature of the palace is that the hand chiselled sandstone blocks have been put together in a special system of interlocking without any binding mortar. A part of the palace is now a luxury hotel while the rest is open to visitors in the form of a museum retaining the original furnishing and ambience.
