Friends, this Diwali vacation, we celebrated our holiday in deogarh, its small town approx 380 kms from Ahmedabad. It is 5 hour drive from my city Ahmedabad, in Rajsamand district . Deogarh has few accommodation option including 400 yr old heritage palace. I have chosen palace to enjoy my diwali vacation.   Deogarh was 2nd largest kingdom after Udaipur in Rajasthan & one can feel that richness in each n every corner of mahal.

Whether staying in palace or any activity within palace, they make you feel like a king. Candle light dinner on roof top with rajasthani performance was one of the best programme.

A beautiful lake & fort is seen on Mahal’s terrace & to view sunrise at this point was MESMERIZING!

This area has many lakes. We have explored two of them. One with 1956 vintage car “willy” & another with private boat. Unexplored nature is speciality of this area.

Another important & less known sight seeing in this area is its heritage train. Its built by britishers in 1930. It passes from Aravali forest, connecting Marwad & Mewar . There are lots of bridges to connect hills, one can feel like a konkan railway or Shimla -Kalka railway.

After my visit to Rajasthan, i think few unique words are very frequently used in rajasthan. One is “पधारो” & another is “हुकुम”. I really miss these words & warm hospitality of deogarh mahal.
