Look beyond the beaten track amid the golden sands of Rajasthan and you will glimpse an oasis – A dazzling shimmer of sunshine on water that hovers on the edge of a mirage. Drive on. This is timeless Rajasthan – untouched by the creeping fingers of ‘modernity’ – unchanged in its unpretentious natural grandeur.
In the early 1900’s, Rajadhiraj Nahar Singh of Shahpura mortgaged the family’s private property and jewels to bring water to his people. Today, the lakes he created, form the heart of a verdant wetland refuge – historic, picturesque, tranquil – an idyllic setting where man and nature have come to understand each other. Situated midway (4hrs drive, 220 Km from both) between Jaipur and Udaipur and easily accessible from hotels in Udaipur, Ranthambore and Jodhpur, Shahpura Bagh is the residence of the rulers of Shahpura. Travelers, since time immemorial, have always stopped to rest and refresh themselves at this oasis and the Shahpura family is famous for their warmth and hospitality.
