The heritage buildings of India have long attracted the world. Now, with the initiative of people who love to host and entertain, this historical side of India is open to people as an unforgettable homestay experience. We bring you a series of India’s Top 10 Heritage Homestays. We start with The Alipura Palace, an undiscovered beauty located right between Jhansi and Khajuraho where you will be welcomed by a royal couple who love nothing more than sharing the history of their breathtaking home with guests.
The right wing of the palace is over 300 years old and it’s present residential area was built over a century ago. Extensive reconstruction has given this historical location a new lease on life. It is the perfect place to discover more about the Royal Bundelkhandi past with historical souvenirs decorating the walls. With ten luxurious guest rooms The Alipura Palace is perfect for people who are looking to spend time in the lap of luxury and history.
The Palace not just serves as the perfect conduit for people travelling from Orchha to Khajuraho but is also a pleasurable place to stay. Day trips can be easily organised to both Khajuraho and Orchha.
At the Palace, crackling bonfires complement a dazzling, starry sky. Rich, hearty meals can be enjoyed on the terrace or inside the palace’s private restaurant.
This wondrous Palace is the pride and joy of Mr. Manavendra Singh and his wife, Brijraj Kumari.
