Beginning life as a 4 room pavilion in 1835, Rambagh Palace grew first into a hunting lodge in 1887 then into a stately palace in 1925. In 1957 it began its transition into the flagship luxury hotel of the Taj Group. An amazing and elegant building, it reflects the best of Rajput and Mughal architecture. The 47 acres of garden have featured in ‘The Most Beautiful Gardens in the World’ and were originally designed for the relaxation of the ladies of the court – the Zenana. Courtyards with fountains, immaculate lawns with preening peacocks, ashok, bougainvillea and lantana trees laden with blossom lead into the exotic Oriental Garden and Mughal Garden. Even the swimming pool is surrounded by carefully thoughtout planting, providing wonderful colour all year round.

 A popular hotel to travellers and the local high society of Jaipur, the Rambagh boasts two of the best and†grandest restaurants in India.

Lovers of boutique hotels may be deterred by the size and grandeur (and groups) of this hotel. However its splendour and serenity are second to none, with only peacocks and a traditional flutist for sound.

 The Maharaja and royal wings have been restored with their original oak panelled walls, bronze statues and gold chandeliers. Paintings and memorabilia track the family’s reputation as world class polo players, to the current day.

Rambagh Palace is conveniently situated near Jaipur's main shopping area and historical monuments, and yet its acreage masks any noise.
