when in Jodhour u cant miss this place... the person who showed us around was learned and passionate about working at Umaid....
The main buildings are split into three: one part the Museum, one part royal residence and one part luxury hotel run by the Taj Group. The Museum is reasonably interesting, but some of the displays could do with refreshing. The much vaunted vintage car collection was somewhat disappointing, behind glass covered in sticky handprints. I suppose I am glad I... More
If you want to see a marvel of architecture,....this is the place...it is nicely maintained and museum showcases artifact from past which are amazing.....
This museum takes you back in time with the history and the whole get up of the palace.Make sure you have reservations or you will not be able to visit the hotel section.Entries are very nominal and highly recommended to tourists.
Again nothing much beyond photo's of the local royalty believe this time big in Polo so lots of Polo shots. Again would have been disappointed if had paid more then 120/R. Would not bother and certainly wouldn't go out of my way to visit.
A beautiful architectural wonder. Situated on a top of the Hill the place is one of the most sought after place in jodhpur. The museum shows how the palace was made and the glimpse of the Royal things used by the Rulers. Also you can see the Vintage car collection.A must visit.
The most intriguing aspect of palace is that this was made when the city was under severe drought. The Palace was made with interlocking of chiseled stone blocks. Even the big dome without any RCC or other support was made using the same technique. Though the major part of building has been converted in to a hotel, still the building... More
This is the only part of palace which is open to all public, rest of palace is converted to hotel and Jodhpur's king still stays here. Its a museum of royal families personal collection. Many vintage cars are also kept for viewing outside this museum.
The only thing worth seeing is the display of vintage cars. Except for this, the place is not worth a visit. Only a few rooms are on display, and main focus is on the glory of the Maharaja and his ancestors, something available on the internet. Other than this, there are rooms displaying antique clocks, crockery, glassware, chandeliers, etc.
This is palace in which most of the part is converted into a Hotel. There is very few rooms to see here but the spectacular view of the palace just amazes you. The 5 odd rooms are managed well and worth having a look. There is a small place just at the entrance where one can enjoy some snacks/icecream after... More
