Once the summer residence of the rulers of Shahpura, Shahpura Bagh is comprised of two residences. Set among 45 acres of garden and surrounded by lakes, the estate is located in an unspoilt part of Rajasthan, between Jaipur and Udaipur. The main house (Nahar Niwas) is where the Shahpura family reside and where meals are served; alternatively a private dining option is available. Umaid Niwas, the restored guest house, is where the rooms are located. Originally built to house visiting nobility, the rooms in the guest house are light and airy, with high ceilings and large windows. The rooms vary in size and shape, but they are all elegantly furnished and equipped with modern amenities such as electronic safes and air-conditioning. Excursions trace the history of the region through neighbouring forts and legends.
