Umaid Bhawan Palace and Museum is one of the best tourist attractions in Jodhpur. It is also called Chittar Palace because of its location being Chittar Hill. Known for marvelous architecture, Umaid Bhawan is the last royal palace built in India, a few years before independence.
The palace has three wings- a museum, heritage hotel, and residence of Maharaja Gaj Singh. The museum showcases the making of the castle, Maharaja Umaid Singh’s lifestyle, antique clocks, art deco furniture, writing sets, sporting, and much more.
The heritage hotel of Umaid Bhawan has 25 rooms and 39 suites, which the Taj Group of Hotels now runs. At the Traveller’s Choice Award program, Umaid Bhawan Heritage Hotel was awarded the World’s Best Hotel of 2016. Actress Priyanka Chopra chose this hotel for her wedding with Nick Jonas.
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.
