Umaid Bhawan Palace was built to provide employment to famine stricken people of Jodhpur.



Situated on the Chittar Hill in Jodhpur Rajasthan, Umaid Bhawan Palace is one of the largest royal residences in the world. It was built by Maharaja Sawai Jai Singh II, for the sole purpose of providing employment to the famine – stricken people of Jodhpur. Building work for the palace started in the year 1929 and completed in 1943. The Maharaja commissioned Henry Vaughan Lanchester as the architect of the royal residence. Built in golden – yellow sandstone and made in an area of 26 acres, the palace employed around 2000 to 3000 people for its construction. In 1971, the palace was divided into three parts: as the residence of the royal family, a museum showcasing the history of the royal Jodhpur family and a luxury hotel.
