FatehParkash palace is a very ideally located 19th century palace just next to City Palace. It is right on the bank of Lake Pichola and a walking distance from Jagdish Temple. The palace was built by MaharanaFateh Singh who ruled Mewar between 1884 and 1930. It was constructed during his rule to serve as exclusive venue to host royal banquets. The Durbar hall which is the main feature of the hotel has a mention in the history because its foundation stone was laid by Lord Minto, The Viceroy of India in 1909. Later it was converted into a heritage hotel but its rooms and suites dotted with miniature paintings, portraits, royal artefacts and the armoury of the Mewar dynasty take you to legendary times. There is no compromise on modern amenities as guest rooms have Wi-Fi, satellite TV as well as guests can enjoy an outdoor pool, a spa and a fitness area.
