Originally built in 1865 as a British guest house for state VIPs, Jhira Bagh Palace is a heritage building that has hosted many dignitaries throughout its history. In 1943, the palace received a facelift inspired by art-Deco and Bauhaus trends of the time, updating its facade, though its vaulted roofs, sunlit courtyards, and old wooden stairs and banisters still speak volumes of its architectural grandeur. Jihra Bagh Palace has only 15 rooms and suites, each with double-height ceilings, spacious bathrooms, and unique theme-based decor reflecting a variety of architecture styles such as Victorian, Art Deco, and Indian royalty. All suites feature air-conditioning, period decor, and a verandah. The property has an on-site dining hall where multi-national cuisine is served. Dishes are prepared fresh at the Palace kitchen where only organic ingredients grown at the property’s farm or supplied for the dairy are used. Other facilities include a nearby children’s park, library, laundry and dry cleaning services, swimming pool, and games room with billiard table and table tennis. Jhira Bagh Palace is set on one hundred acres of gardens, farmland and wilderness and on outskirts of Dhar, approximately 1 hour from the airport.
