Rajasthan evokes images of erstwhile royalty - polo-playing princes and beautiful princesses who captured their hearts. The history of Rajasthan - or ‘Rajputana’ as it was once called -; is rich with legendary tales of love and valour.
For nearly two centuries, the Rambagh Palace has been home to generations of royals. Built in 1835 on a modest scale for the queen’s favourite handmaiden Kesar Badaran, it was later refurbished as a royal guesthouse and hunting lodge. In 1925, Rambagh was converted into a palace, and became the residence of the Maharaja of Jaipur.
