About Nadesar Palace, Varanasi
Nadesar Palace has hosted royalty, statesmen and celebrities since 1835. The name Nadesar is derived from the Goddess Nadesari, whose shrine is located in the front of the Palace. Set amidst verdant gardens, mango orchards, marigold and jasmine fields, it is a haven of peace and tranquility.
Works of art from the Maharaja's collection decorate the walls of the Palace's 10 luxurious suites. Embellished with original pieces of furniture refurbished to recreate the atmosphere of a bygone era, the décor of the rooms is intended to evoke the marigolds, jasmines, and pale pink lotuses that are offered to the holy Ganges.
This incredible city on the banks of the Ganges is a pilgrimage site for Hindus - stroll along the ghats and witness an incredible diversity of river life.
