We toured and had dinner at the palace and all I can say is WOW! After seeing many palaces in India that were vacant, it was great to see one beautifully restored and furnished. The entire tour was informative, amazing and free. Be warned there is no photography inside most of the rooms of the palace. We had dinner after... More

Dining reservations for 2000 per head are required just to see the exhibitions. No discount even for people who're already shelling a fortune at other Taj properties

Went twice and both opportunities had a wonderful experience. The service is great, they have adopted the all royalty tradition and manners. Although They always say that is fully booked, the times I have gone, ther are not more than 7 customers. Food is amazing, from the chef daily speciality to the desserts. It is totally worth it experience.

Beautiful. Amazing. Absolutely worth-visiting! The palace overlooking grandly manicured lawns is full of wonders, one of which is the extensive, yet elegant dining room with seating for 100 guests and its menu carved out on the roof...! the lavishly furnished rooms, the paintings, and the huge collection of chandeliers are not to be missed. The palace library is said to... More
