Special Experiences

Private Dinner

 

Enjoy a relaxed dining experience in traditional surroundings under the hospitality of a noble family of the erstwhile Jaipur State. A true sense of tradition starts from the moment you enter the noble’s home. Their heritage home sings stories at all corners adorned with fresco paintings & scalloped arches.
 
Enjoy your evening with their stories of their past. Hear how Rajasthan evolved from the time since their ancestors ruled to this new world. The surrounding will slowly turn into a private dining room for you to savour Rajasthani food, some of the cuisines date back to hundreds of years.
 
Rajasthani cuisine is a splendid array of colorful, spicy and unique dishes. The platter has always been a delight. The food style has been affected by the natural topography and indigenously available ingredients. A lack of leafy green vegetables, a pronounced use of lentils, pulses, legumes and the use of milk, curd and buttermilk in place of the water in the gravy marks the essentials of Rajasthani cuisine. Aptly has it been said that the royal kitchens of Rajasthan raised the preparation of food to the level of a sublime art.
 
The food is best described as drawing influence from traditional Rajasthani cuisine, serving to inspire rather than conforming to strict guidelines.
 
We have created this wonderful ambience with the luxury of privacy just for your unique taste and an unforgettable dining experience.
 
*Haveli is the term used for a private mansion in India. The word haveli is derived from the Persian word ‘hawli’, meaning "an enclosed place".

Excursion to Bhangarh from Jaipur (Half day)

 

At the edge of the Sariska forest in Rajasthan lie’s the town of Bhangarh whose haunted status is attracting scores of excursions. Known for its ruins, Bhangarh is also a pre-historic site. Legend states that the city of Bhangarh was cursed.
 
The story goes that this sixteenth century town was home to a magician. He fell in love with the kingdom's beautiful princess, Rani Ratnawati. Knowing that he would never be allowed to go near her, he decided to use his dark powers to seduce her. He spotted the princess's maid buying oil and cast a spell on the oil. If the spell worked, on touching the oil, the princes would surrender to him.
 
Locals say that the princess, who was proficient in the occult herself, soon sensed his evil plan and foiled it. She threw the flagon of oil away,  here upon it fell on a stone. As soon as the oil touched the stone, it started rolling towards the magician and crushed him. But before dying he cursed the palace with the death of all who dwelt in it, without the possibility of rebirth.
 
That might be more legend than fact, but Bhangarh is still a charming ruin to visit. Even today, a walk to the palace through the remains of what once used to be a bustling town is a beautiful affair.
 
You will be picked from your hotel in the morning at around 0800-0830 by Toyoto Innova car and driven to Ramgarh, about 28 kms from Jaipur.

After the visit to Bhangarh we will take you to a nearby village for a visit where you can explore it with its narrow walk ways and shops. Spend some reflective time with the local people; watch the women make the Indian bread on earthen kilns while the men graze their cattle, watch potters and cobblers in action, you could also visit a local school.
 
Next you will be driven to the Kableshwar fort, where over lunch, with the nobles of the erstwhile state of Jaipur you will get an opportunity to listen to the tales, by your host, of the people and lifestyle of the bygone era, a perfect end to the tour which will leave lasting impressions.
