Alsisar Mahal, the former seat of the Thakurs of Alsisar is a beautifully refurbished country residence. It’s typical Rajput pile of high-walled courtyards and romantic, domed apartments are all richly decorated in traditional style. With their carved four-posters, antique furniture and scallop-arched windows, the suites are palatial. But the real show stealer here is the cavernous Durbar Hall, where you can dine on fine Indian cuisine beneath crystal chandeliers and gilt-framed ancestral portraits. Princely weapons and hunting trophies hang in the billiards room, and there’s a delightful pool that gets plenty of shade as well as sun.
Alsisar Mahal’s comfortable rooms offer standard grade facilities and the perfect base to explore the painted havelis of Shekhawati.
