The earlier Mughal architecture was retained on the outside with intricate carvings, splendid domes, windowpanes and gardens, while the interior has been changed completely. Each room is a story in itself with names to match instead of numbers like in any other Hotels worldwide.The Surya Mahal, the Chand Mahal, the Krishna Mahal and so on reflect the personality of the name given to it while.
the suites with the names of particular place are decorated with the art and architecture of the particular place.
