1. Woodville Palace Hotel, Shimla

You’ll remember it from: 3 Idiots

The Palace is the former summer residence of the Raja Rana of Jubbal and gives guests the chance to take a step back in time.

2. Hotel De L’orient, Pondicherry

You’ll remember it from: Jism

This French mansion, complete with high-raftered ceilings and savonnerie rugs dates back to the late 1760’s.

3. Baradari Palace, Patiala

You’ll remember it from: Bodyguard

Designed in 1876, this palace, once home to Maharaja Rajinder Singh is perhaps not as ostentatious as the other palaces of Patiala, but is nonetheless still significant.

Just like the Maharaja it was commissioned by, it refuses to conform to a single architectural style, and happily unites Hindustani, Mughal and Colonial influences.

4. Hotel Narain Niwas Palace, Jaipur

You’ll remember it from: Paheli

Boasting ethnic furnishings and a traditional Jaipur-style painted wall decor, this Rajput palace exudes royalty. It was built in the year 1928 by General Amar Singh Ji, the then Thakur of Kanota.

5. Chomu Palace, Jaipur

You’ll remember it from: Bhool Bhulaiyaa

This 300-year-old elegant palace hotel evokes the gracious lifestyles of the princes of Rajasthan and is a beautiful amalgamation of the old and the new.

6. Lallgarh Palace, Bikaner

You’ll remember it from: Band Baaja Baaraat

Grandiose and stately, this red sandstone palace built by Maharaja Ganga Singhji evokes a way of life long forgotten, allowing you to live like Royalty, if only for a day.
