The Mardana rooms are built around a spacious garden court ringed on three sides by spectacular arcade halls. These had never been completed and large rocks had to be hand-chiselled to create linear living spaces. The thick walls were pierced to make balconies with views of the countryside. Each room has two or three square rooms linked with wide arches and the facilities are discreetly tucked within.
The Kotwara Mahal suite honours the Renaissance talents of Muzaffar & Meera Ali which range from film and set design to architecture, fashion, lifestyle, furniture, carpets, & textiles. The chequered floor and walls with a textured patina travel to the Nawabi world of Kotwara while the calligraphy talks of paradise and poetry.
