    Real Heritage

    by

    Palace is restored to its pristine glory and this have most intricate carvings not only in the hotel lobby and corridors but also in the rooms.
    Laxmi Niwas Palace was once the personal residence of Maharaja Ganga Singhji of Bikaner. The residential rooms were designed keeping in mind that they would be used only by the royal family itself or by the personal guests of the Maharaja. Most of the rooms are decorated lavishly using gold wall paintings and have painted or carved wood ceilings.Now for us comfort bed for relex and fell like perside.

    Unique Quality: Royal Welcome with Aarti, Tika Cermony and garlanding. Welcome drink on arrival.
    Chowk, the inner courtyard organises Gala dinners. Enjoy a lavish dinner while folk dancers and musicians entertain you. Enjoy a private dinner on the terrace over looking the lawns.The Trophy Bar is well stocked bar serving a wide range of drinks and a variety of cocktails.

Sleep in the maharajah’s bed!

by kokoryko about Laxmi Niwas Palace

Well, not his bed, but in his palace, in a big bed, in a big room, and enjoy the exotic architecture of a Rajasthani palace. Not exactly an old historical palace as this was built in 1902 by Lord Swinton Jacob, in a “Anglo-scenic” style, a blend of Rajput and European architecture and decoration for Maharajah Ganga Singhi.
Lord Mountbatten, Queen Mary and lots of other dignitaries or celebrities stayed here, and now Kokoryko was here too!! (haha)!
Arriving at this palace, you are welcomed by guards in traditional dress, and all is done to make you feel like a real VIP (which, for the price you pay, you may not expect), you can choose your room, when several are available, a butler helps you making yourself comfortable, etc, etc. . . and all usual amenities you expect from an international standard hotel (except Internet connection, but when I travel, I forget about “modern” world!). Breakfast was great.
And, last, but not least, you can visit this palace (which was a palace, before being “converted” into a hotel), discover the wonderful architecture, the exquisite stone carvings of this building (other tip).

Folkloric dance at the Palace

by kokoryko

Folklore, folkloric dance is not exactly my cup of tea, and even, Indian music is far from being my favourite, but during dinner at Laxmi Niwas Palace, I must admit I was impressed by the dancer who entertained the hosts dining in the central square yard of the palace. I have no idea whether the dance was traditional, but the dancer (woman) was very skilful and very spectacular, dancing barefoot on swords, on broken glass. . . . Well, something to impress, but it was interesting to look at!

An Anglo-scenic palace in Bikaner!

by kokoryko

I stayed one night at the Laxmi Niwas Palace, hotel, former palace of Maharajah Ganga Singhi of Bikaner, and was impressed by this building, and visited it early morning, walking in the gardens, walking on the roofs of this intricate building, with multiple levels, small carved, sculptured pavilions, turrets, long corridors, a central square yard. . . . . . I do not know architecture but I am a bit sensitive to beauty and art, and liked a lot my early morning exploration of this palace, looking at the city from the roofs, discovering details in the carved windows, looking at the light on the sculptures. . . . Being in another world for a short hour, before enjoying a breakfast in the central yard of the palace.
