About Palace Hotel (Bikaner House)
For years, Mount Abu was the summer residence
of many Indian Princes, who wanted respite from the stifling summer of their
Bikaner House was the summer residence of the royal family of Bikaner. Constructed in 1893 during the minority of Maharaja Ganga Singhji, the mansion was designed by the legendary architect Sir Swinton Jacob, under the supervision of the Council of Regency.
Set on vast grounds amidst tranquil hills, Bikaner House occupied one of the best locations in Mount Abu and was visited regularly by the Maharaja and the royal family. In 1962 Maharaja Karni Singhji decided to convert the royal residence into a hotel.
"PALACE HOTEL" as it is now called has been in operation since then. The Palace hotel, today a classified 'Heritage Hotel' still stands glorious as before a legacy from the Maharajas of Bikaner.
