Fateh Prakash Palace

Named after Maharana Fateh Prakash - one of the greatest rulers of Mewar dynasty, Fateh Prakash Palace is a grand heritage palace standing majestically along the eastern shores of Lake Pichola. Built in the early 20th century, Fateh Prakash Palace is a part of city palace complex. Converted into a heritage hotel, the magnificent Fateh Prakash Palace is a treasure house of exquisite chandeliers and priceless paintings, unique crystal and crockery collections. The interiors of the Fateh Prakash Palace hotel is dotted with miniature paintings, portraits, royal artifacts and the armory of the Mewar dynasty. The major attraction of Fateh Prakash palace hotel is the imposing Durbar Hall - originally known as Minto Hall, which is used as a banquet hall and hired out for special functions. The durbar hall has seven crystal chandeliers suspended from its ceiling, of which three of them is located on the center and the others are on the corners of the hall. 

The crystal gallery in the Fateh Prakash Palace hotel is probably the largest private collection of crystal in the world with beautiful crystal works including crystal chairs, tables and sofas, sculptures and crystal beds. These master piece crystal collections was created especially by F & C Osler in England for the young Maharana Sajjan Singh, who began his reign in 1874. But unfortunately after a decade, before these crystals reached the palace, the maharaja died and these crystals were packed away in boxes until Shriji Arvind Singh Mewar, decided to display it to the public. Opened in 1994, the crystal gallery can be viewed from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. The entry fee to the crystal gallery is Rs. 500 for adult and Rs. 300 for children.

Within the premises, the Fateh Prakash palace hotel offers several historic venues for hosting exclusive banquets, conferences, ceremonial dinners, corporate events, weddings etc. The top terrace of Fateh Prakash palace hotel can seat up to 300 guests in buffet style dining and up to 190 guests for formal banquets. The Fateh Prakash Palace Hotel was certified as the best Heritage Hotel in 'Heritage Grand' category for 2001-2002 by the Department of Tourism, Government of India.
