Inside The Hotel
In the finest tradition of Rajput hospitality, the Rambagh Palace offers its guests a taste of royal living - a luxury and extravagance that was once the sole preserve of kings. It’s elegantly appointed rooms, marbled corridors and majestic gardens echo with history.
Palace Gardens & Bird Watching
Featured in Peter Coat’s ‘The Most Beautiful Gardens in the World’, the palace gardens are a haven for some of the land’s most beautiful birds. The star, of course, is possibly the world’s most beautiful bird - the majestic peacock. A stroll through the five gardens is bound to find you within sight of these glorious birds, strutting proudly about and justifying every one of the myriad poems penned, lyrics sung and canvases painted to celebrate their beauty.
It isn’t just the peacock that flaps its wings here, though. Wagtails, babblers, mynahs, pariah kites, tailorbirds and red-vented bulbuls are just a few of the migrants and residents that fill the gardens with their chirps and songs.
As the symphony of the birds fills your head and empties it of every care, and the gentle breeze accompanies you on your walk, it’s easy to see why the ladies of the zenana escaped to these gardens to get away from the proceedings of the palace.
In stark contrast to the vast uni-hued desert sands, folk dancers and musicians explode in a riot of colour and vibrant tradition. Sit back on the sprawling upper front lawns of the palace as they enthral you with their lively steps and jaunty tunes against the backdrop of the majestic palace - a show nearly identical to the ones the maharajas of yore enjoyed.
The ancient rulers of these desert kingdoms were fierce believers in their court astrologers, and would rarely make a move without the stars aligning in their favour. Experience for yourself the mystique of this age-old practice as acclaimed palace palmist and astrologer Mr. Dandiya consults the future in your palm and in the stars. For an appointment and consultation charges, do speak to your palace butler.
