Siraj Mahal

The terrace of the vast and magnificent Mardana Mahal can be accessed by two stairways and a wide ramp laid out with horizontal bands of coloured stones. There are therapeutic views of the changing pastoral countryside, which grows millet, wheat, and mustard.

This slender white room with a glass cube double bathroom placed in the middle is an art gallery space where the sculptural murals of Indore-born Siraj Saxena adorn the walls. The painter and ceramic artist has also worked on the arches outside the room, which sit at the centre of a verandah laid out with the pattern of a royal durrie. He also works in graphics, textiles, metal, and wood. The windows and the balcony of this room face the sunrise. It has a double bed, making it ideal for a romantic couple.
