About Umaid Bhawan Palace Museum

When talking about Rajasthan’s heritage, Umaid Bhawan Palace deserves a special mention. It is one of the youngest and the most magnificent palaces in India. It was constructed between 1928 and 1943 and was the home of the erstwhile Jodhpur royal family. The palace houses a family museum and a hotel along with being the sixth-largest private residence in the world. Located atop the Chittar Hill, Umaid Bhawan Palace has an exotic view of the city, stretches of dunes and the famous Mehrangarh Fort. Being extremely well maintained, the museum in the property premises is a huge crowd puller. On display is the exclusive range of items that belonged to the royal family. Starting from weapons, stuffed animals, trophies, amazing crockery, clocks and other exhibits the museum in the palace is located twenty minutes from the airport. The Umaid Bhavan reflects a flash of western style as Maharaja Umaid Singhji was fascinated by western lifestyle and hired Henry Vaughan Lanchester, a well-known Edwardian architect to get the palace constructed.
