The Darikhana, otherwise known as the ‘Chamber of Carpets’, was built towards the end of the 18th century and served as the haveli’s guest-house. Today, the Darikhana is the hotel’s most popular alfresco dining venue.
Another dining option is Baradari, the haveli’s ‘newest addition’, which was built in the 1850s as the Thakur’s personal entertainment pavilion. This is where he spent his days and, no doubt, many nights entertaining and being entertained. It has retained this purpose throughout the centuries and now serves as a restaurant at the heart of the hotel, hosting events all year round. The original multi-pillared structure still stands in the pavilion and, indeed, its name ‘baradari’ means ‘twelve pillars’.
Original stables, converted into snug alcoves for reading and relaxing, and a small 18th-century temple make up the sides of the picturesque courtyard. We pride ourselves on the beautifully-kept gardens filling the open space.
