Considered the largest of its kind in the state, the palatial building is a fusion of Rajasthani and Mughal architecture. It is built on a hilltop overlooking the whole city, encapsulating courtyards, pavilions, terraces, corridors, rooms and hanging gardens. Imagine walking down its massive corridors, dressed like a dream and living every vivid moment of your fairytale wedding! Magical, isn’t it?

Best part! You will also take blessings of the presiding deity at the Jagdish Temple, located within the palace complex.

HolidayIQ reviewer Ravi Mittal says, “Overlooking lake Pichola, the palace was modified across 22 generations (nearly) of the royal family before it took its present shape.” HolidayIQ reviewer Tarang Mudra shares, “The place displays the belongings of Maharana Pratap and their ancestors, their lifestyle, their losses for the country, their patriotism.”

2. The Oberoi Udaivilas: Remember the Wedding in Yeh Jawani Hai Deewani?

We don’t need to tell you how marvellous this place really is! It matches up every bit with what is shown in the movie. Elegance and luxury personified, getting married at the Oberoi Udaivilas is a surreal experience. A couple of outdoor lawns, sit outs and water bodies serve well as splendid backdrops.

HolidayIQ reviewer Saroj says, “My friend was getting married there and had booked the entire hotel. The hotel is exotic and the rooms are beautiful and assorted. You feel like a queen living here. My room had a semi private pool. It was surreal to look at sunrise and sunsets lighting up the lake. The opulent rooms and stunning lakeside setting makes me want get married there..

Oh don’t worry! It’s not really haunted. Chomu palace is a 300 year old fort that is picture-perfect as a wedding venue. From bridal showers and cultural etiquettes to grand gala dinners and martini nights for bachelor parties, anything that you could envision, comes true here!

HolidayIQ reviewer Elisabeth Pfahl says, “Chomu Palace is a stunning 300-year-old fort situated 35 kilometers from Jaipur. Al rooms have a charming bygone feel with homemade furnishings, odd spaces and uniqueness that most Rajput palaces are losing with corporate make-overs. An ideal destination to relax once you have tired of all the tourist sights!

HolidayIQ reviewer Archana says, “Perfect place to experience authentic Rajasthani feel. Beautiful place for destination wedding.” HolidayIQ reviewer Eklovya adds, “I and my wife settled on a table. While we were trying to settle into the situation, one of the staff members approached us and said that they had actually arranged a private dinner for us on the rooftop and we had a personal butler at our service.”

Adorning the banks of the Gajner lake, the palace is like a treasure waiting to be discovered and showcased. It is very close to the wildlife sanctuary and a hidden jewel of the state. Revered for its fabulous setting and unhurried way of life, you can fix nature-walks, boat-rides, sanctuary dinners and desert safaris for your guests’ entertainment. What can be more exotic than this!

HolidayIQ reviewer Manas Manu says, “Gajner palace is a heritage site. However, they also offer you a small visit to the palace charging 250 INR per person for a 20 to 30 minutes visit. Staff is very professional and helping. You may also want to go in for boating in cool breeze of the lake.
