The SpaceAbout The Castle
Welcome to a unique property in Jaipur that is in existence since mid-nineteenth century, prior to which, This Castle was more of a fort that saw some fierce battles for survival.
Currently this Heritage haveli is a family run establishment, headed by a retired Lieutenant General from the Indian Army. Kalwar, a small village is a destination in itself. As being on the outskirts of the Jaipur city, This Castle rises up from the foot of a hill that dominates the backdrop of the castle. Away from the hustle and bustle of city life, this Castle in Jaipur provides very soothing and tranquil surroundings. You will be tempted to meditate!
The access and the surrounding of the castle takes you out from your comfort zone to a all new level of exploration and adventure. In the mornings, don't be surprised to see peacocks dance, pigeons feed and a pair of king fishers liven up the garden. Hear noisy parrots and quacking geese? Come and experience all at this Castle.The castle has been carved out of a fort originally belonging to another clan of Rajputs, the Narukas, and won over by the present clan, the Kilyanots, in a fierce battle in the Sixteenth Century. The women folk of the Narukas commited Johar, i.e. they jumped to death in burning pyres rather than be captured alive. Thakur Balwant Singh commenced the construction of this Castle in 1879 AD and the construction continued for the next two generations. The previous Thakur, Jai Singh, was a reputed shikari turned wild life conservationists, who established and developed the game sanctuaries of Sawai Madhopur and Sariska. In keeping with family traditions the present Thakur, Mandhata Singh, has served in the Indian Army for four decades, rising to the three star rank of Lieutenant General.
