Rajasthan Palaces

City Palace in Jaipur, RajasthanRajasthan is a land of superb architecture. The most attractive feature of the state is the Rajasthan havelis and palaces. From the Mughal architecture to the European architecture, you will find all kinds of examples while having a heritage palace tour of Rajasthan. Most of the former rulers of Rajasthan built palaces as their residence. These palaces were adorned with elaborate and exquisite architecture. Many of the former palaces of Rajasthan have been converted into heritage hotels. And almost all the palaces house museums, displaying the rich collection of artifacts from the bygone royal era.

Not only the rulers of Rajasthan, but the rich merchant class also built massive residences. These mansions are luxuriously decorated and are known as havelis. Not only the decorations, the merchants were also concerned about the image of the owners that the havelis reflected. They commissioned artisans to ensure that the havelies were constructed in a manner that would reflect the prosperity of the owner. The most famous havelis are those of Shekhawati and Jaisalmer.
