Gajner Palace, was once a hunting lodge of the Bikaner rulers located on the banks of Gajner Lake.
This place is a royal masterpiece that still stands tall after all these years. As you take a stroll around the property, you can’t help but marvel at the breathtaking architecture and lush green garden sprawling over 6000 acres.
Originally built as a hunting resort during the British Raj, Gajner Palace has hosted many dignitaries, including the Prince of Wales in 1905, Governor General Lord Elgin, and even Lord Mountbatten when he was the Viceroy of India. And let’s not forget the most sought after invitation in the Indian social calendar, the Imperial Sand Grouse shooting at the Palace during the Christmas season.
As you explore the Palace, you’ll notice the distinctive terraces and balconies that offer stunning views of the Thar Desert. And if you’re lucky, you might even spot some migratory birds like Imperial Sand Goose, Antelopes, and Black Bucks. But don’t worry; there are plenty of other creatures to see, like Nilgais, Chinkaras, Blue Bulls, and Deer. You can even go boating on the lake.
Gajner Palace has been transformed into a stunning heritage hotel since 1976 and is currently owned by the HRH Group of Hotels. The Palace complex has been divided into four wings, each with its own unique style, and the hotel has 13 historic suites that have been meticulously restored to their original grandeur. From the furniture to the wallpaper, the four-poster beds, and picturesque windows, every detail has been carefully preserved.
So what are you waiting for? Come and experience the grandeur of Gajner Palace and make some memories that will last a lifetime.
Just keep in mind that the entry fee is Rs. 280 per person for 30 minutes, and the Palace is open from 10 AM to 7 PM.
