HOTEL LAXMI NIWAS PALACE
THE LAXMI NIWAS PALACE
The Laxmi Niwas Palace was commissioned by His Highness Sir Ganga Singh Ji in 1904
Since 1904, only a few have been deemed worthy of a higher order of hospitality –princelings, Europe’s pre-eminent bluebloods, King George V and Queen Mary, a handful of statesmen; a few of the notable architects of history. The world at large had been shut out of the Laxmi Niwas Palace. You may now actually go a step further. Gaze at hand-painted friezes and gold-laden walls. Examine up close the inspiration
behind Lutyens’ and Baker’s architectural style. And perhaps reflect on the fact that exclusion does sometimes make a place what it is.
