Set amidst the serene Vindhyachal ranges, this Castle was built in the 16th century by Rao Shakti Singh. The hotel Castle Bijaipur offers a bewitching blend of the Mughal and colonial architectural
styles that make it a distinct place to stay.
The 16th-century Bijaipur Castle entices tourists with its location right next to a wildlife sanctuary where leopards and wild boar, blue bulls and spotted deer roam free. Built by Rao Shakti Singh, the
younger brother of Maharana Pratap Singh in the 16th century, the castle is being run as a heritage hotel by the Bijaipur royal family now. The castle provides excellent lodging facility with an option
of jeep safari in the nearby villages and opportunity to enjoy the traditional Mewar hospitality. A must visit site of Bijaipur.
Spreading from the ramparts of the Castle, Bijaipur village reclines at the foot of Vindhyanchal Hills, surrounded by forests of Jacaranda. As old as the castle, the village remains a testament to rural
Indian life. The surrounding countryside unfolds in agricultural lands harvesting peanuts, mustard, corn and poppy. A buffalo cart trundles towards home, raising the evening dust. Stacks of hay and
firewood perched on a rainbow of sariís drift in and out of the haze, feet vanishing in the blur, as if the earth and the heavens were hugging each other very, very close. Standing atop the castle
ramparts in the evening one can greet the smiling moon as the sun bids farewell over the blue rooftops.
