Umaid Bhawan Palace is the pride of Royal Rajasthan:-
In my personal view among the world’s largest private residences, Umaid Bhawan Palace is located at Jodhpur in Rajasthan. The palace has been divided into three wings – museum, the residence of the erstwhile royal family of Gaj Singh and the heritage hotel. The palace is also known as Chittar Palace due to the extensive use of Chittar sandstone and its location on Chittar hill.
