Sardargarh Heritage Hotel: Sardargarh, 2 nights
Type: Full Service Hotel

Description: Sardargarh Fort was constructed from 1738 to 1743 by Sardar Singh one of the most powerful Dhodihais. The Forts overall architectural style is grand, but still it strikes you with a solemn austerity. Understandable, since it was build for military reasons, it is fortified with massive ramparts, and giant circular bastions with battlements. Huge entrances and gateways, concentric walls and imposing arches, domes and vaulted spaces, textured facades, jharokhas (balconies) and cannons complete the picture of medieval military ambience. Temples, gardens, bath aria, granaries, residential suites, audience halls, pavilions, water works, watch towers, armories, treasuries and mint dungeons are spread out across three lakh square feet with courtyards. The fort still retains its medieval underground infrastructure - passage systems, rooms, halls, granaries and stores, open today to guests of the Hotel. The Hotel offers a breathtaking view on all sides. To its north is the enthralling view of the Lake. The Darbar Hall offers a charming vista of the village. And looming over the horizon is the imposing Aravalli Hill Range.

Carved elephants rear at entrances, and fountains glitter lavishly with hand painted blue tiles.

Most rooms have large four poster beds and sunken marble baths overlooking private walled gardens. Airconditioned luxury tents have embroidered interior canopies, old style baths and outdoor decks.
