Khimsar Fort Palace of Rajasthan is located at a distance of 90 km from Jodhpur. The initial construction of the fort dates back to the early 16th century. At that point of time, the main purpose behind building the fort was war and security. However, around mid 18th century, the royal family converted into their residence. It was then that the Zenana (ladies residence) was constructed. In the Zenana, exquisitely carved windows were built to serve as the veil for the ladies in waiting. The most recent addition to the Khimsar Fort Palace was carried out in the 1940's. This was when Thakur Onkar Singh, the present chief and the 17th direct descendant of Rao Karamsi built a regal wing for himself.
Inspite of all the alterations and additions done to the fort from time
to time, it displays an amazing heterogeneity. Presently, it has been
converted into Khimsar Palace Heritage Hotel. Infact, it is counted
amongst the premier Heritage Hotels of India. On one hand, Khimsar
Palace Hotel of Rajasthan provides all the luxuries of a contemporary.
While, on the other, its scarred walls and battlements remind you of
it's rich and glorious past. Perched high on the edge of the Great
Indian Thar Desert, it serves as a window to the rural life of India.
