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 1700s. 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 visitors arrive in Jaipur, they arrive in the midst of a thoroughly modern city that has thrived as part of one empire after another for more than a thousand years. The Rajmahal Palace will serve the curious traveller as a superlative base for the exploration of the city. Professional guides are always available to assist you in touring the city. The Amber Fort lies nearby, as does one of the most famous wonders of the world, the Taj Mahal. After a day of touring the sights of Jaipur guests will be delighted with the opulent luxury awaiting them at their residence in the Rajmahal Palace. There they will reenter an ancient world and enjoy the pampering fit for a king.
