Deogarh Mahal, Deogarh, Rajasthan

Deogarh Mahal

The imposing edifice of Deogarh Mahal dates back to 1670 AD when Rawat Dwarka Dasji built it as a family residence. Located on the borders of Mewar, Marwar and Merwara, this 17th century structure commands far-reaching views of the Aravalli mountain range.
As a heritage hotel, authentic royal character is steeped into every brick of the property. The hotel is teeming with character that is influenced by its glorious history, traces of which are still dominant in every room.

It features a bedroom, a bathroom designed like a 1920s train, and a sheesh mahal (glass palace) made with Belgian stained glass and Indian miniature paintings dating back to 1670.

Located about halfway between Udaipur and Jodhpur, the small town of Deogarh is a good place to break a journey through Rajasthan and explore the Aruvali Hills.
The imposing palace was built in the 17th century for the Rawats of Deogarh, one of the most important families in Rajasthan. It was completely restored from ruins by the same family, who operate Deogarh Mahal as a heritage hotel. It is a rambling structure, with a total of 50 rooms and suites scattered amongst several wings.
Each room is individually decorated with period furnishings but also feature modern fittings such as air-conditioning or air cooling and en-suite bathrooms. Suites also have tea and cofee making facilities and minibars. The rooms and suites all vary in shape and size and are located throughout the building on various floors.
