Patan Mahal is a palace-turned-heritage hotel with 19 spacious rooms; each has its own verandah or balcony. The palace offers a great view of the ancestral fort and of the nearby Badal Mahal.
The Aravalli Range rears up on three sides as you enter the hollow where sits Patan Mahal, a restored 200-year-old palace, amid its fruit groves and vegetable gardens. As the eye travels up the green hillsides that enclose the mahal, it lingers on ruins from Rajasthan’s feudal past: stone walls, hunting towers, the ornate skeleton of Badal Mahal and, right on top, a 13th-century fort that guards the mouth of the valley. Time and weather have made these relics immensely picturesque and it is hard to imagine that Patan was the scene of a bloody battle between the Rajputs and Marathas with French troops in 1790 – a fight to the death for a town prized for its riches. The Marathas won the war, eventually marking the end of the Rajput reign over Ajmer and Malwa as well. It is said that the Patan Mahal was so well endowed that it took three days for the marauders to loot it satisfactorily.

The palace grows most of the the food it serves and the rest is sourced locally. You can spend your time by walking through the fields or take a refreshing dip in the swimming pool or laze around the pool area which offers a stunning view of the surrounding hills and the palace. You can also trek up the hill for a day long picnic at the Badalgarh Mahal.If you’re feeling even more adventurous, the trek up to the fort is well worth the time. The fort is one of the few in India to never have been conquered by an invading army.
