Last Royal Palace built in India before independence, The Umaid Bhavan Palace in Jodhpur is one of the few royal properties built for noble cause rather than luxury. The expensive venture was commissioned only to provide employment to people of Jodhpur. Currently Umaid Bhavan is a residence for Royal Family, a museum and one of the world's best hotel managed by The Taj Hotel Group.
