Most of the rooms at Neemrana Fort-Palace are mahals, which are theme based, giving the guests a unique stay experience. For example, the Francisi Mahal is a French suite with a pillared verandah and offers a flavour of colonial France. The furnishing inside this mahal includes a tapestry of Joan of Arc. Likewise, the Hara Mahal, named after Lord Shiva, has an Indian seating behind its peacock arches and is adorned with early 20th century oleographs produced by Raja Ravi Varma. Now, who wouldn’t want to spend some relaxing time in such romantic settings?
