One of the most majestic convention halls in the country
he Gulab Mahal was the designated room for meetings and semi-formal discussions, during his Highness Ganga Singh Ji’s reign. A lotus motif is etched in usta along its marble walls. Four columns, extant of the walls, rise in an arc to the roof above, each with its own deity carved into the bottom, providing direction, closure, insight and haste to the business of decision-making. The room can seat about sixty easily, as well as pianist who may tap the ivories on an antique baby grand propped up in the corner. A private dining room at the back of the room doubles up as a closed meeting area. The place merits the discussion of many a merger and partnership, such as that of the splendid teak wainscoting around a grated fireplace that works just as splendidly today.
Originally the royal smoking room, Rajat Mahal has since been converted into a reading room where original friezes feature angels, raginis, and deities hovering over dramatic scenes of weather, paying homage to the region's intense climate. Displaying over 18 kg (40 lbs) of gold, Rajat Mahal is a thoroughly distinguished venue adorned wtih Usta artwork, a red and gold-painted ceiling of teak, a marble fireplace with gold enameling, and grey accents. Rajat Mahal is available for large private events and meetings. Personalized banquet menus, themed activities, and special rates are available for groups and corporate arrangement.
