DEEWAN - E - KHAS
Deewan-e-khas (dining room) is a large hall divided into two
portions by elevations. The pillars are decorated in traditional
style and ambience. The cuisine is mainly Rajasthani except the
breakfast, which is more or less continental. Use of excess cooking
oil and spices is very carefully controlled. The choice of dishes
has been made in keeping with family food tradition and making it
palatable to foreign taste. Naturally, there are the lovely pickles
and chutneys to add flavor.
Rang Mahal is the lifeline of the castle colorfully decorated with
family portraits, paintings, arms and comfortable furniture. This is
one place guests will never tire of being in to relax. It is a
three-tier affair, the large hall, the elevated sitout and a further
elevated portion that houses the family temple. The pillars add a
distinct stamp and the wooden railing above beautifies the premises.
It is very different from anything else in the castles of Rajasthan
village of Pachar is still traditional, one of the few in shekhawati.
There is no major industry, except for a sawmill. Magnificient 'mojdi'
makers, potters and weavers; plus the daily routine of farming community
make Pachar a place to wander around.
Add to this the wonderful sandy belt extending to the temple of khatu
shyamji - 10 kms away, where one can take a ride or do a jeep safari.
There is ample to do and yet be relaxed, free from crowds, sound of
vehicles and pollution.
