Vignettes of an old Indian fort-palace: Neemrana in Rajasthan

Neemrana Fort-Palace built since 1464, thus the 15th century treasure. Its on the Delhi- Jaipur highway, just outside Neemrana village in Rajasthan. Neemrana became the third capital of the descendants of Prithviraj Chauhan III, who had fled Delhi in 1192 after he was vanquished in battle by Muhammad Ghori. In 1947, Raja Rajinder Singh of Neemrana moved down to Vijay Bagh as the façade of his Fort-Palace crumbled and its ramparts began to give way. For forty years he tried to rid himself of his liability but there were no takers.

Finally, in 1986, the ruins were acquired for restoration. In 1991 Neemrana Fort – Palace opened its doors with the nobility of its facade raised, and just 15 liveable rooms. In 2000 Neemrana won the Intach-Satte award for restoration & tourism for ‘being the foremost example of how we can pick architectural treasures from the national dustbin and turn them around. Neemrana has become synonymous with ‘restoration for re-use.’ In 2004, Neemrana was nominated for the Aga Khan Award.

Now in 2014, Neemrana Fort-Palace is finally ready with 65 rooms/suites and rampart gardens . An additional wing now houses the pool and health spa, an amphi-theatre, the hanging gardens with a salon, a restaurant with a roof-top garden and conference rooms and many special suites.
