Set amidst a sprawling 50 acres, and surrounded by undulating, yellow mustard fields, the Laxmi Vilas Palace was built for Raja Raghunath Singh, the younger brother of the then Bharatpur ruler, Maharaja
For almost a hundred years, the Laxmi Vilas Palace has been a prime witness to, and a participant in almost every eventful happening that took place in the princely state of Bharatpur – royal
weddings, affairs of the court and royal duck shoots.
The same traditions of hospitality have been kept alive till the present day. In 1994, a decision was taken to convert the Laxmi Vilas Palace into a hotel. The Laxmi Vilas Palace Has been
operational ever since.
