Bhanwar Vilas Palace is a series of delightful discoveries-from the first awe-inspiring glimpse of its magnificent façade standing out against the ancient town of Karauli, to an exploration of its edgy decor aesthetic-an eclectic melding of Oriental and Art Deco forms. Built in 1938 it is the family home of Maharaja Krishna Chandra Pal, who is the 181st in an illustrious line tracing itself back to Lord Krishna and is the head of the YaduvanshiRajputs.
Bhanwar Vilas Palace is a series of delightful discoveries-from its magnificent facade set in 50 acre grounds, to an exploration of its decor aesthetic-an eclectic melding of Oriental and Art Deco forms.

The organic fields and vegetable gardens, the stables with rare palomino Marwari horses, the organic dairy, and the garages with vintage cars and ancient palanquins and howdahs ensure that every moment is a fresh discovery.
