With 26 acres of landscaped gardens where peacocks display their plumage, and 76 guest rooms, including 40 raj-worthy suites the palace is purportedly one of the world’s largest residences. A 105-foot central cupola sheds a golden light that appears to waft through the long corridors. Built in the Art Deco style of the 1930's for the grandfather of the current maharajah, Umid Bhawan Palace sparkles after a $15 million renovation.
