centimeter of the Durbar Hall in the Samode Palace is embellished
with elaborate gilded frescoes produced by the finest craftsmen
of the region. Louvered windows permitted females in purdah
to witness dances and other festivities below without being seen
by the men. In this region of Rajasthan, rooms are sparsely furnished
and the walls are richly ornamented as compensation. Built in
the 18th century by a nobleman, this exquisite building is now
a private heritage hotel.
