About the Rambagh Palace

The Rambagh Palace was originally constructed in the year 1835 as a school for a young Ram Singh after his father, Sawai Jai Singh III died under mysterious circumstances. Initially, according to Rajput customs, Ram Singh, who was then just 15 months old, stayed inside in the Zenana, away from the influence of British. However, later, the experienced elders of Rajput clan felt that the young prince needed to move out of the Zenana in order to gain proper education. This laid the foundation of the Rambagh Palace. The garden in which the palace was built belonged to Kesar Badaran, the governess of Sawai Ram Singh and was also named after her. When, she died leaving behind no heir, her property was taken over by the state. Ram Singh had a soft corner for this garden and hence made it his hunting lodge, rest house and an official guesthouse. Ram Singh's son, Madho Singh added more rooms to this palace.

Later, history repeated itself, when Man Singh died in 1922 leaving behind an adopted son, Sawai Man Singh II. As before, Man Singh's guardian Sir James Roberts decided that the young prince had to be trained properly away from the Zenana. Hence, Rambagh Palace again became a school, and very much like his predecessor, Man Singh too developed a liking for this palace. His fondness for this palace led him to declare it a royal palace. He spent quiet a lot of money to renovate and ornate and give it a befitting appearance of a royal palace. The palace gardens were once rated amongst the best in the world and the palace itself became the only one of its type having a polo ground attached to it.

After independence, being the ruler of the largest city of Rajasthan, Man Singh was appointed as Rajpramukh or Head of State of the Union of Jaipur, Jodhpur, Jaisalmer, and Bikaner for life and Rambagh palace became his official royal residence. However, things changed dramatically in 1956 when the scrapped his post to reduce the burden on official treasury. It was this sudden development that forced Man Singh to convert his home into a heritage hotel.

Today, Rambagh Palace is one of the best heritage hotels in Jaipur. The Palace Hotel, sprawling in an area of 47 acres, is a terrific palace to stay at.

The management of the hotel was taken over by the Taj Group in the year 1972.
