Alsisar Haveli, Rajasthan
This charming heritage hotel was built in 1892 as a nobleman's town house. Having been carefully restored, this historic haveli was converted into a heritage hotel in 1994. Alsisar Haveli lies in the heart of the Old City of Jaipur, just a ten-minute drive from the popular Pink City with all its major sights and museums. The hotel is owned by the “Kachawa” clan of Rajputs who for more than five centuries ago founded a sub-clan popularly known as “Shekhawat”. In the lobby one can see the intricate Shekhawati frescos adorning the ceilings. This heritage haveli has a dramatic facade displaying the traditional Rajput architecture with rambling courtyards, stained glass windows, serene alcoves, and lush greenery. Enjoy the ambience at the outdoor swimming pool surrounded by the ornate gazebos and cenotaphs.
