|Deogarh Mahal is an imposing structure built
in 1670 A.D. At a height of about 2100 ft
above sea level, it is cooler than surrounding
Rajasthan. Built by Rawat Dwarka Dasji as
a family residence, it soon became the hub
of village activity.
The family interacted with the villagers
and invited a host of feasts and festivities
to be performed within the Mahal precincts.
Some of these traditions are still practiced.
And the gates, that always remained closed,
to ward off enemies, are now open to the
guests. Deogarh lies on the borders of Mewar,
Marwar and Merwara, about 80 miles north-east
Some Deogarh miniatures adorn the personal
collection of the present Rawat Sahib. Frescoes
of this art form can also be seen on the
fort walls. Deogarh Mahal also has some
exciting rooms to browse through Sheesh
Mahal - the colourful hall of mirrors, is
just one of them!
Outstanding cuisine and traditional hospitality
are offered to the guests in magnificent
surroundings. Home grown fruits and vegetables,
in-house milk products and oils provide
a delectable and distinct freshness to the
food. The hotel also offers delicious seasonal
jams and juices. Airy terraces offer a splendid
view of the hills and lakes as one sunbathes,
reads or watches the sun set.
