Thoughts become Things … Think about it

Pataudi Palace

Yesterday I wrote about Neemrana, a place I didn’t quite like. Today’s post is about Pataudi Palace. It is managed by the same company, but it is so strikingly different from Neemrana that most people would imagine that this  one is managed by a separate company all together.

The palace is just off the Gurgaon Manesar toll.

What I found best here was the helpful, smiling people who greeted you in bright pink, yellow or cyan clothing. The palace is maintained well and the food (a thing that is commonly bad at Neemrana properties) was excellent.

The compound has a lovely swimming pool, which unfortunately opens at 8am and not 6am.

It also has some 300 peacocks and peahens. Their chatter does get irritating after a while, but just to see the majestic birds moving peacefully around the compound oblivious of the humans is a sight to savor.

The many fountains and the old English architecture go well with lore of the Nawab’s from Pataudi.

One can go around the compound on bicycles or foot.

The palace of the current Nawab is off bound for the people visiting the palace, as Sharmila Tagore likes her privacy and right so.

The tea and pakoras for evening snacks at the lush lawns is typically reminiscent of the British…

A must get away for people near Delhi…

Cheers!
