India has a long glorious history. While we talk about the past we can’t afford to ignore the lavish life style of the Maharajas and royal zamindars that formed a vital part of Indian cultural identity. Many years have gone by but the charisma of the royals of India continues to allure us as you stay at any of the heritage hotels in India. Grand courtyards, lavish dining arrangement and elegantly designed architectural designs makes heritage hotels in India a class apart.

Statistics indicates that many of the plush heritage hotels in India are confined to princely states of Rajasthan, Madhya Pradesh, Himachal Pradesh and parts of Kerala. Some of the grand palaces, mansions and forts of the erstwhile Maharajas have now opened their doors to serve the tourists offering them world class hospitality services.
