Umaid Bhawan, India's last great Palace, was constructed between 1929 and 1944 by the present Maharaja’s grandfather, Maharaja Umaid Singh as a relief measure to provide employment to over 3000 people afflicted by consecutive years of drought. With its blend of Art Deco, classical European and traditional Indian forms, it has gained renown as the world’s largest and most spectacular private residence when it opened in 1944, with 347 rooms.
