Raj Mandir Complex
The royal palace of the Nawabs of Jaipur was constructed in the 18th century and came to be known as the Lal Mahal Palace when the Jodhpur Nawab royal family, under the patronage of the then Rajpramukh and Dewan of Jaipur, Chudasama Ramlal Hira, gave it to Jaipur’s King as a wedding gift. Today, the palace—with its imposing, intricately carved red sandstone façade—a beautiful garden and stunning grandeur, makes for an awe-inspiring destination. The venue offers a variety of experiences, from a royal lunch or a candlelight dinner to a stroll through the forecourt or grounds. If you visit in the early morning, you get a chance to admire the palace’s reflection in the fountains as they fill up with water.
