Sujan Rajmahal Palace, the glory of Jaipur
India is a place of storied emperors and rajas, of glittering palaces filled with jewels, and of royal opulence and luxury. When a guest strolls the grounds of the modern hotel, currently known as the Sujan Rajmahal Palace of Jaipur, these ancient tales all come to life. The Rajmahal Palace has endured and prospered throughout 250 years, as various empires have come and gone around it. The Rajput rulers built it long ago, and they were absorbed peaceably into the Mughal Empire in the 1700’s. When the British came, they naturally made this royal seat of luxury the official residence of the British Resident Political Officer of Rajputana. After independence came to India, the Palace returned to the possession of the royal family of Maharaja Sawai Man Singh II of Jaipur. Today much of the Palace serves as a spacious and elegant hotel, operated by Sujan. A recent and extensive restoration has modernized the building and recaptured much of the glory of the Rajmahal. Today, the hotel offers the taste of royal glamour to every guest, providing a real sense of the opulent life of ancient emperors.

When Kings Learned the Meaning of Luxury
The Rajmahal may be considered a living museum, a kind of tactile portal into the life of ancient royalty. Wherever one wanders through its halls, the architecture and design overwhelms with the sense of grandeur, sumptuousness and lavishness. Unique features are the hallmark of every room in the complex, and the decorative motifs of the Rajputs, the Mugals and the British Viceroys, are everywhere, often surrounded by vivid colors and elaborate lighting.
