By the 1980s the Patan family was spending most of their time in Jaipur, and visited their Palace and grounds a few times a year. In 2005, the current scion of the family, Digivijay Singh, decided that it was time to return. He spent the next five years lovingly restoring the palace and grounds to their former glory.
Along the way, he took a concious decision not to carve out more rooms, and retained the old, large and airy rooms. The period furniture showcases the skill and expertise of the Rajasthani artisan. Beautiful paintings on the wall and roofs have been carefully restored. The nooks and crannies have been retained, and many rooms contain surprises — there is the room with a trapdoor, and there is more than one room with little doors and staircases that lead into the turrets, the kind of spaces that a writer or artist looking to escape the world will love.
The beautifully appointed rooms at Patan Mahal reflect the royal heritage of Rajputana, and the Patan Family.
All our rooms have clean and well designed bathrooms, with hot and cold running water and bathtubs.
