AFTER THE STEP WELL HIT IT BIG AT
STAY. IN HEAVEN AT ROHET GARH
This haven outside of the city was originally the home of the Jagir of Rohet, followed by noblemen of all achievements. In 1990 the doors of Rohet were opened by Thakur Manvendra Singh and this peaceful palace became a secret hotel for those in the know. They have horse stables and you can ride with the manager if you are able. This place is truly why people come to India, it is the type of place you could write a classic novel, or see your life as if in a film. After a long day of sightseeing, horse-back riding or safari, the only thing left to do is sit in the garden, have an aperitif and remark on your serene surroundings.
