Built by Maharaja Umaid Singh (1929 - 1942), Umaid Bhawan Palace was named after him. This wonderful Palace is also named as Chittar Palace due to the local chittar sandstone used in its building. It is one of the great examples of Indo-colonial and art deco architecture of the 30s. The exclusive feature of this palace is that the manually chiselled sandstone blocks have been put together in a special system of interlocking. A part of this ancient palace has been now converted into a hotel. The other remains on the hotel is converted into an excellent museum that houses model weapons, aeroplanes, antique clocks, priceless crockery, bob watches and hunting trophies. Both sections of the palace together retain the ambience of royal splendour.
