Deep in the Thar Desert, behind endless waves of sand dunes lies Bikaner, one of the most interesting centres of later India art. In this great town of red sandstone, with richly decorated houses rising high over its bustling steets, stands Bhanwar Niwas, the most magnificent of the famed haveli belonging to the Rampuria family.
|Commissioned by the late Seth Bhanwarlalji Rampuria in 1927, the architecture of the haveli and its interiors is a fascinating blend of Indian and European styles. Now a heritage hotel, Bhanwar Niwas offers its guests an experience of the lost flamboyant world of Rajputana. |
