First built and used by the East India Company in the late 1800s, and later renovated and acquired by the Maharaja Prabhu Narain Singh of Benares, Taj Nadesar Palace has had a colourful history.
Today the Palace is owned by the Taj hotel brand and has carefully been restored to its former glory as one of the most exclusive properties in Varanasi.
With only 10 rooms in total, Taj Nadesar Palace is a small boutique hotel nestled into a mango orchard and surrounded by jasmine fields within the larger complex of the Taj Ganges Hotel. This means that guests have access to all their worldly desires, while still retaining privacy and tranquillity.
Over the centuries Nadesar Palace has played host to a range of famous guests, including members of the royal family back when India was a colony.
Today the boutique property still attracts guests looking to experience the holy city in style, and as a place to escape the hectic city noise and relax into solitude.
Nadesar Palace is located just outside Varanasi and offers easy access to the old city, Ramnagar Fort, Kashi Vishwanath temple and the 20,000 other temples scatter near the mighty Ganges.
The Palace sits next to a tributary of the Ganges and is the perfect place to explore the historical and spiritual region of Uttar Pradesh.
