Front View main building

Once the palace of Raja Saheb Khandela, Chota Pana, Arya Niwas was bought by the current owner family about 43 years back. Extensive renovations followed, before it opened its doors in current form to guests.

Main Garden

Our main garden is a relaxing, rejuvenating place, where you can meet people from around the world. For many of our old timers, a day well spent means relaxing on the lawn, with a favourite book and freshly ground coffee served in a French Press!

Heritage Lounge

Once the Durbar hall for the Haveli, it was extensively renovated in the exact original style about 40 years back. The frescoes were retouched using colours extracted from plants or semi-precious stones. The blue you see comes from the indigo plant. The base green from malachite.

Also, do notice the stained-glass work in the arches and the polished limestone pillars.
