Lalgarh Palace is a stunning palace as well as a priceless heritage hotel in Bikaner. The palace is an unmatched example of Indo-Saracenic style which was designed by the British architect Sir Samuel Swinton Jacob. This is the real pride of Rajasthan with numerous stories buried in its walls.
This palace was built between 1902 and 1926 in the Indo-Saracenic style. Sir Swinton Jacob was the the chief architect who made this dreamlike palace happen. The Maharaja of Bikaner, Karni Singh, M.P., set up the Ganga Singhji Charitable Trust here in 1972. A part of the palace was dedicated for the service of the trust. Two other parts of the palace were converted into a heritage hotel run by his daughter Princess Rajyashree Kumari.
It is a beautifully designed building, made of red sandstone on a lavish scale and has a perfect blend of Rajput, Mughal and the European style architecture. The palace is adorned with beautiful old paintings & hunting trophies. It has some exquisite latticework and filigree work that is done by craftsmen from Bikaner itself. The Palace has wild peacocks spreading their feathers at almost every step among the flowering rows of bougainvillea.
The Palace is a Jewel in the crown of Thar Desert. Being a small and well appointed heritage hotel, it has hosted many a luminary from across the world. The fittings and furnishings are authentic Rajputana. Its lush green gardens evoke a sense of tranquility.
The LallGarh Palace Library has a massive collection of rare, original Sanskrit manuscripts on parchments, copper and gold or silver plaques.
The Lallgarh palace is open daily from 10 am to 5 pm and is closed on Wednesdays.
