Rajasthan in India was called as Rajputana before 1947 (India's independence). And this Rajputana had more than a dozen rulers, and every one of them has a palace and a fort. Palace was the residence of the king & his family and fort were more like a meeting place for king's ministers and even their military.
Kings also use to collect tax from their people via which they were able to maintain their palaces & forts. But all this changed after 1947 as India became a democratic Republic and the kings were now just rich men with forts and palaces.
So without any tax collection, the ex-rulers of Rajputana faced the huge problem of maintaining their palaces & forts and this they turned towards hospitality & tourism industry.
In this post, I want to share images of six palaces & forts in the state of Rajasthan who is now rated as some of the best palace hotels, not in just India, but the world.
One night stay here will cost between $1000 to $5000 and believe me they are worthy of every single penny.
