TEJI'S AWTAR MANSION is named after SARDAR AWTAR SINGH ANAND, the patriarch of the Anand Family; and his son SARDAR TAJINDER SINGH ANAND fondly known amongst family and friends as TEJI; who bought this bungalow from the British in 1947 after Independence. The bungalow, located at the heart of Agra Cantonment, originally had more than 80 rooms. Over the years, it has been renovated to meet the changing needs of the family and now stands in its present form. SARDAR AWTAR SINGH ANAND came to Agra in late 1930's from Rawalpindi [now in Pakistan] on transfer as Additional Garrison Engineer in Military Engineering Services. After India became independent in 1947 he left service to start his own construction firm under the name of AWTAR SINGH & SONS which went on to become a very well reputed construction agency. He was a highly respected member of the society and a devout Sikh. During his life time he was honored by changing the name of the road on which AWTAR MANSION is located from Pensioners Road to SARDAR AWTAR SINGH ANAND ROAD in 1960, a rare honour for any living person.

This homestay is truly remarkable compared to some we had been to. The rooms are gigantic, beds comfortable and Kori the owner makes you feel like part of the family. She would breakfast with us each day and on arrival sat us down in her garden pavilion and fed us masala chai and homemade biscuits. She is a remarkable Lady. Her Chef Pinku is fabulous as well and my friend and I had a private cooking class with him( needs to be around in advance) which we also sat down and ate with Kori in the main house. Chef Pinku delighted in showing us his interpretation of generations of handed down recipes. Our room was not serviced but this did not bother us in the slightest as we were only there for 2 night and whatever we asked for we were given graciously

This is honestly a home away from home - staying in one of only 6 guest rooms with Anand family will give you the impression and feeling to be paart of the family. Rooms have all needed comfort including coffee/tea maker and breakfast is really good. If possible ask to join the family dinner - awesome! Loved to stay there!

If you look for a place that is not like a standard hotel, this is the place to be. Unfortunately, we have stayed only one night but that was a pleasure from the reception till the leave. We've been greatly welcomed and had dinner with the family. We had great discussions together forgetting we were hosts... we were like in the family ! I was a bit sick and it was taken into account... great moments of share ! Moreover, in the morning, you have your breakfast while chatting with the grand mother who is so friendly and can talk forever explaining lots of stories ! Thank you all for the good stay and hope to see you again once !

My friends and I stayed at Awtar mansion while we were in Agra to see the Taj Mahal. We received the friendliest and most hospitable service from Kori and her family and had the most relaxing stay here out of our entire trip round India. Their homemade food was delicious and they were incredibly knowledgable with tips and suggestions for places to eat and things to see in Agra. We felt like we were part of their family when we stayed here, honestly can’t recommend this place enough!

The rooms are commodious and comfortable, the beds good. Having a cocktail in the garden and supper in the family manse is a treat indeed. Breakfast is the best. One feels as if you have found a long last part of your family.
