Chandelao - medieval fortress turned heritage hotel
A medieval fortress turned luxurious heritage hotel, the grand surrounds and attentive service of Chandelao Garh can have even the most down-to-earth visitor entertaining fantasies of basking in Mughal Empire splendour. Even better, the hotel helps locals by providing work and training, and assisting in local projects. But be sure to venture out from your cosy confines. Chandelao village is an out-of-the-way treat, a manageable little dish full of Rajasthani flavour where artisans ply their trade, diverse groups such as the Bishnois and Rajkas live, saried women provide colour, food is fresh and spicy, and fine countryside – in this instance a braid of lakes boasting rich birdlife – lies nearby.
