The facade of Umaid Bhawan palace. With 76 guest rooms,...

JODPHUR, RAJASTHAN, INDIA - 2008/10/15: The facade of Umaid Bhawan palace. With 76 guest rooms, Jodhpur's Art Deco palace Umaid Bhawan is reportedly one of the largest residencies in the world. Architected by Henry Vaughan Lanchester, the facade mirrors the main temple of Cambodias Angkor Wat, but with colonial-era wings, Art Deco interiors and a central cupola guarded by stuffed leopards - a mishmash of styles influencing its 1940s beginning. The palace was reportedly built to provide labour during a famine. Fresh from a $15 million facelift, Taj Hotels and Resorts have recently returned the palace to its original magnificence, plus adding marble bath-tubs and period furniture to all the rooms, a new pool overlooking the ruins of Mehrangarh Fort, and a new basement spa.
