History of Umaid Bhawan Palace

Maharaja Umaid Singh built Umaid Bhawan Palace in 1929. It is one of those palaces in India which was built with a noble purpose to employ thousands of workers during a famine. 

A saint had once cursed that the Rathore dynasty will go through a drought period. In the 1920s, Jodhpur witnessed drought and famine for three years. It was a tough time for farmers, daily wage workers, and other people. Umaid Singh decided to begin the construction of a palace to bring employment to the people.

Henry Vaughan Lanchester, a famous architect, designed the architecture, and the foundation of the palace was laid in 1929. Umaid Singh had employed nearly 3,000 people and kept the work at a slow pace. The construction of the palace completed in 1943. It was then named Umaid Bhawan Palace after Maharaja Umaid Singh.
