We stayed for 2 nights and were treated like royalty. Our room overlooked what in rainy season is a lake, but what was mostly market gardens when we were there. This gives it a bucolic feel, and a great quietness except for the voices of farmers and the cries of birds . The rooms, which were decorated by the Maharajah's wife, are lovely. The food was very good, and overall the service was impeccable. We were a bit worried that there would not be enough for us to do there (we were the only guests) but the staff took us on a nature walk, and the manager showed us around the superb old fort and the old town, which was interesting, and without the hassle of Pushkar where we had spent the previous night. This really is a lovely place to stay - and well worth a trip from Puskhar or Jaipur.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Phool Mahal Palace has the massive Fort of Kishangarh as its backdrop and is washed by the monsoon fed Gundalao Lake in front, an architectural setting very rarely seen in Rajput history. Dry and drab though it may seem in the summer, the first magic showers transform it into a serene and smiling land. Originally the Payandaz Bagh or the garden at the foot of the fort, this pleasure garden of the Maharajas of Kishangarh was a source of inspiration to a number of famous Kishangarh miniature artists like Nihal Chand and it's easy to identify it in many paintings of the 17th century. Even today its setting and the myths related to it, provide themes for the painters of Kishangarh, executing in the classic style of the Kishangarh school of painting on paper, cloth, wood, marble etc. ... more less
