Patan Mahal
Sikar, Rajasthan.
The historical city of Patan is about 70 miles northeast of Jaipur,on the Kotputli Sikar road, off the National Highway 8, the road which connects Jaipur and Delhi.

Nestled in a valley formed by 3 hills, Patan Mahal rises in the distance at the end of the city. The palace is well-located with an unhindered birds-eye view of the 13th century ancestral fort and another palace called Badal Mahal which stands loftily at an imposing 2000 ft above sea level.

Patan is a city in the Indian state of Rajasthan. In the 12th century, it became the centre of a minor state called Tanwarawati or Torawati (after Tanwar/Tomar the clan name) ruled by the Tomara clan. The chief of the clan is the Rao of Patan, and he is considered to be the direct in descent from the last Hindu Emperor Anang Pal Tomar II the ruler of Delhi before Prithviraj Chauhan.

The family came and built the impregnable fort at Patan and also the Badalgarh Mahal, halfway up the mountain in the 13th century. The Patan Mahal was built a few years later.

Patan Mahal, home to Rao Digvijay Singh, is situated on the foot hills. He has now opened his home to the discerning traveler. The Patan Mahal is a heritage hotel with 18 rooms with all modern amenities, maintaining it’s original character.

Patan is the site of one of the last great battles in Indian history. Called the Battle of Patan, it saw the Maratha Confedaracy pitted against the Rajputs of Jaipur and their Mughal allies in 1790.


By the 1980s the Patan family was spending most of their time in Jaipur, and visited their Palace and grounds a few times a year. In 2005, the current scion of the family, Digivijay Singh, decided that it was time to return. He spent the next five years lovingly restoring the palace and grounds to their former glory.

Along the way, he took a concious decision not to carve out more rooms, and retained the old, large and airy rooms. The period furniture showcases the skill and expertise of the Rajasthani artisan. Beautiful paintings on the wall and roofs have been carefully restored. The nooks and crannies have been retained, and many rooms contain surprises — there is the room with a trapdoor, and there is more than one room with little doors and staircases that lead into the turrets, the kind of spaces that a writer or artist looking to escape the world will love.

The beautifully appointed rooms at Patan Mahal reflect the royal heritage of Rajputana, and the Patan Family. All our rooms have clean and well designed bathrooms, with hot and cold running water and bathtubs.
Facilities Services
Patan Mahal is a Heritage Home, surrounded by it’s own farm on one side, an 800-year-old fort and another palace halfway up a hill.

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. A combined force of the Marathas and the French were the last to try, and having unsuccesfully laid seige to the city, the French commander General de Boigne compared the fort to the Rock of Gibraltar.

Patan Mahal offers a wide variety of services & facilities to take the pain out of traveling and to make your stay here as pleasant as possible.

The 800-year-old fort on the hill is a strenuous trek, and the ruins of the Badal Mahal palace the perfect place to enjoy a quiet lunch. The farming area of the house is full of surprises for the nature lover.

The step well, or baori, is a uniquely North Indian phenomenon and there’s one close by. Spend some time walking into a well — it’s an experience you won’t forget in a hurry.

The writer and the artist will love the nooks and crannies scattered all over the property where they can hide away for hours on end without fear of discovery.

You can find rajasthani men and women busy making bangles or beautiful pots in the village. The temple also adds to the serenity of the existing ambience where one can spend a few spiritual moments on their own.

And if you’d like a taste of a typical Rajasthani village, then step out of the gates of the palace to explore the quaint alleys and roads of the village.
