Mandir Palace, Jaisalmer

3.4
Mandir Palace (Temple Palace) is an exquisitely carved architectural marvel of ornate balconies, canopies and delicately carved screens that represent a high point of local craftsmanship in its finest and purest form. The imposing beauty of the Palace is over two centuries old when the temples of Lord Rama and Lord Girdhariji (another name of Lord Krishna) were built and subsequently the Palace complex around the temples.

One of the most beautiful portions of the Palace was built during the reign of Maharawal Jawahir Singhji in the beginning of the twentieth century. A noticeable feature of Mandir Palace is its tower also referred to as the ‘Badal Vilas’, which stands out as the tallest structure below the hill-top city fort.

  • This beautiful heritage hotel is in a very good location in Jaisalmer. Rooms were clean and staff attentive, thanks to Bhojraj Singh the hotel manager who was very helpful during our stay.  more »
  • There are a few rooms with objects of daily life of the former Builder, unfortunately, most of the Palace is reserved either the hotel or the owners. In particular the beautiful Tower gets you not to see. There it is worth more in a rooftop restaurant, across to stop himself. Because it has the better view and can invest better entry into food or drinks.

  • An architectural wonder in the heart of the city. We have not understood why this sumptuous place was almost empty of tourists. From the terrace where we were three dining, we admire the fortress and the whole is magical. The staff met at dinner and breakfast is very friendly and attentive. Recommend!

  • Very nice place. Splendid palace, very nice personnel, one of the best view of the fort from the rooftop restaurant...but breakfast very limited and the weakest point : lack of hot water for the shower.
  • A conspicuous historic point in this staggering legacy city is Mandir Palace, which had been the living arrangement of the leaders of Jaisalmer for over two centuries. Mandir Palace is a dazzlingly cut compositional wonder of fancy galleries, coverings and carefully cut screens that speak to a high purpose of neighborhood craftsmanship in its finest and purest structure. Show less A recognizable element of Mandir Palace is its tower called 'Badal Vilas', which emerges as the tallest structure underneath the slope top city post.%%place_in_between_here%%Location: The Mandir Palace is located on Sadar Bazar in Jaisalmer.

  • Excellent service good view, although the food is a bit expensive.
  • Very beautiful place of jaisalmer, half of the palace is now transformed into luxurious hotel, remaining portion having two museums where ancient artistic collections are kept for visitors, both have tickets around 85 ₹ each for Indian citizens.
  • A historic place, great experience there, although the restaurant is a but expensive but all things considered, a great place to spend a couple of days.
