About Laxmi Niwas Palace
The historical stretch of land covering the area of the back portion of Laxmi Niwas Palace and various quarters of State time is known as Lallgarh. Situated in this stretch of royal apartments is the residence of Late Maharaja Ganga Singh, the maker of modern Bikaner, who personally conceived, foresaw and supervised the construction of his personal residence--The Laxmi Niwas Palace-- a magnificent red sandstone edifice designed by Sir Swinton Jacob in the Anglo-Scenic style. This stately building, great & grand, is built around a central courtyard and is intricately carved from the skirting upto the highest dome. The stone 'jali' work (lattice) is awesome and stunning. The motifs, floral and geometrical, leave you mesmerised. A lace- like work of stone on the edges of the entire roof was devised as a glittering crown on the head of the palace!! The royal palace of Laxmi Niwas Palace has a gigantic principal entrance--The Clock Tower which is secured by guards and evokes memories of old grandeur and splendour.

A long drive flanking the vast lawns with rows of trees, fairly big pools and red sandstone quarters take you to the hotel Laxmi Niwas Palace. The great Portico extends a respectful and dignified welcome to the visitor. The sculptural art on the pillars supporting this amazing high- ceilinged Portico, along with the decorative carving, evokes the senses. The wide retina of stately staircase lead you up to the reception which extends a warmth of hospitality to the visitor. It is the pilot to the extensive hallways and the vast 'chowk' or inner-courtyard, hallowed by the memories of festive occasions and gracious functions of the past.

The huge area of the 'chowk', with a garden in the centre and a beautiful fountain, presents a different angle to view the beauty of the palace. All round this courtyard are rows of columns along the long corridors providing an arresting view. On the walls are hung rare Trophies, images of the sportive hunting hobby of the Rajputs. Opening out into these long corridors are rooms of colossal size, with about ten feet high doors, which have been painstakingly restored to their former glory. The original paintwork arabesque decoration on the walls & ceiling of hotel Laxmi Niwas Palace has been restored by local artists and craftsmen. The rooms have been refurbished with exquisite soft furnishings and the bathrooms have been made ultra-modern keeping in mind the needs of the modern day travellers. The Laxmi Niwas Palace still today commands a grand view. It is a monument of the glorious past, a vista of bygone times, covering almost a century of changes ups and downs. It is indeed the 'Crowning Glory' of Bikaner's forts and palaces.
