Bhanwar Vilas Palace is a series of delightful discoveries-from the first awe-inspiring glimpse of its magnificent façade standing out against the ancient town of Karauli, which dates from 1348, to an exploration of its edgy decor aesthetic-an eclectic melding of Oriental and Art Deco forms. Built in 1938 it is the family home of Maharaja Krishna Chandra Pal, who is the 181st in an illustrious line tracing itself back to Lord Krishna and is the head of the Yaduvanshi Rajputs. As the historic heads of the ancient area of Brajbhoomi, a stay with the family offers not simply a slice of history but a composite understanding of the unique culture of this area. Join us on an extravagant spiritual and cultural voyage, amidst gracious, regal hospitality.
