Nimaj, Tehsil Jaitaran, Distt. Pali, Rajasthan,
you enter 'Loha Pole' the towering gates
and pass by the 'Dalwans' (country kin's
sit-outs) the touch of royalty is instantly
apparent. When you stop in the courtyard
(chowk) even a casual glance will make
you appreciate its distinctive architecture.
Guests are given a traditional Palace
welcome out side "Dari - Khanna"
(a hall with arches which was once the
Durbar Hall of the Thakurs, where they
greeted dignitaries, met people and carried
out routine orders.) The Indian saying
goes 'Atithi Devo Bhava' which means 'A
Guest is God'. So we greet you with warmth
and garland you with string of marigold,
anoint you with 'tikka' (an auspicious
red dot) and perform the 'aarti'. You
can then soak in the warmth of Palace
ambience with a soothing welcome drink.
One of the oldest
Heritage property of the Country running
as a hotel, which makes you relive the medieval
era in its 22 ALL-SUITES accommodation.
Over the centuries the Thakurs of Nimaj
refurbished the palace as per their likes
which even today evokes a feeling of awe
and reverence and the imposing gates remind
you of the chivalrous days. The palace facade
carved in red sand stone makes it a distinctive
landmark in the architectural history of
India. Many typical Indian Motifs and designs
used here have to be seen to be believed
which gives the palace a unique flavour.
