The Jewel of Jaipur, Rambagh Palace truly lives up to this name as it is one of the most beautiful palaces in India. Once the residence of the Maharaja of Jaipur, the palace has now been converted into a lavish hotel. The most expensive hotel in Jaipur, it is a favorite with international celebrities and considered by many as one of the best hotels on the planet. Originally built as a garden house in 1835 for Ram Singh II’s wet nurse, Kesar Badaran, the palace and landscaped gardens are spread over 47 acres.

Under the reign of Maharaja Sawai Madho Singh, the garden house and the surroundings were modified and made into a royal hunting lodge as it was surrounded by thick forests at that time. The task of converting the garden house into a guest house and a hunting lodge was given to Sir Swinton Jacob. Marble halls, corridors and courtyards were added to the garden site and Maharaja Sawai Man Singh II made Rambagh Palace his main residence in 1931.

The first building on the site was a garden house built in 1835 for the wet nurse of prince Ram Singh II. In 1887, during the reign of Maharaja Sawai Madho Singh, it was converted into a modest royal hunting lodge, as the house was located in the midst of a thick forest at that time. In the early 20th century, it was expanded into a palace to the designs of Sir Samuel Swinton Jacob. Maharajah Sawai Man Singh II made Rambagh his principal residence and added a number of royal suites in 1931.
