Entry Description

The Phul Mahal; the Palace of Flowers was built early on in the 18th century, and it’s as if all the exotic beauty of India was condensed into this one exquisitely breathtaking room. From the gold ceiling with its ornate floral design to the geometric Jali screens fitted with stained glass it’s the ultimate in oriental opulence. The Phul Mahal is a room dedicated to the art of pleasure is situated in Maherangarh, Jodhpur. In the flickering glow of candlelight reflected from the mirrored ceiling, poets recited lyrical verse, musicians played melodic ragas and dancers danced till dawn.
