Your Host & The Team

Dileep & Dalpat Singh RathoreDileep & Dalpat Singh Rathore
“Talabgaon Castle is a living castle. It has been with our family for over 200 years. We have always wanted to share the experience of a by gone era with the guests of Talabgaon. We Rajputs have a proud history as fearless warriors who lived by a strict code of honor. We also have a reputation for our hospitality. At Talabgoan Castle we want the guests to experience the lifestyle of a Rajput noble. Our family resides at the castle so each guest is treated more like a visiting family member or relative rather than just a guest. Atithi Devo Bhavah (The guest is god) is a Rajput and a hindu tradition that has been followed in India for centuries and our aim is for the guests of "Talabgon to experience that tradition in the luxurious comfort of Castle Talabgaon." Also as the castle is situated in middle of rustic Rural Rajasthan and we want guests to experience and see the real rural Rajasthani lifestyle which they cannot in other city Hotels. Our vision is "Luxury in the Palm of Nature”
 

Dileep Singh Rathore – Reviving Rajasthan’s Legendary Era of Nobility

Born and raised in Jaipur, Dileep Singh Rathore established a film career working on international features such as Ajooba and City of Joy, Blood Diamond, The Way Back and The Dark Knight Rises. In partnership with the Government of India Tourism Department, Dileep has long been actively involved in promoting India as a filming destination to American and European filmmakers.

Integrating his personal and professional life, Dileep restored and converted a legendary 150-year-old family castle, Talabgaon, into a boutique hotel and heritage resort. Tucked away in the heart of Rajasthan, Talabgaon Castle has been in Dileep’s family for centuries and brims with tales of battle, honour and fearless warriors, all tracing back to an ancient Indian dynasty of the sun. The restoration of Talabgaon Castle’s palatial estate grounds and extensive facilities are an expression of Dileep’s desire to share his family history and culture with fellow travellers.

We Care

Talabgaon Castle is actively involved in improving quality of life of their local community and providing employment and training. Hiring residents from the local villages and providing job opportunities in various divisions in the hotel. Talabgaon Castle also encourages international travel companies and their guests to help the local community by contributing resources in the field of education and social welfare.

In collaboration with Land Rover and Indigo Travels, Talabgaon Castle helps to provide clean drinking water to its surrounding villages. Through generous donations from guests and international organisations, Talabgaon Castle worked together with representatives of Indigo Travels to set up new water tubes, water pumps, and water taps for the local people. An active member of the local community, Talabgaon Castle also encourages guests to donate reading materials, books, notebooks, and pens/pencils to local government schools. 

Welcome to Jaipur, Rajasthan

A gateway to discovering medieval India’s royal Rajput palaces, forts and other architectural wonders, Jaipur is the capital of Rajasthan. Informally referred to as the “Pink City”, after Maharaja Ram Singh had the entire old city painted pink to welcome the Prince of Wales in 1876, discover the city’s vibrant culture, colourful festivals and Rajasthani cuisine.

Explore Jaipur’s most distinctive landmark, Hawa Mahal. Also known as the Palace of Winds and built in 1799, the delicately honeycombed five storey pink-sandstone structure is extraordinary. The vast complex of courtyards, gardens, and buildings featuring a blend of Rajasthani and Mughal architecture at City Palace is equally impressive. Embark on a royal elephant ride up to the imposing white marble and red sandstone palace at Amber Fort. The intricate carvings on the walls and ceilings, and detailed mirror work are fascinating. Browse the colourful bazaars in the Old City. More history can be viewed at the Albert Hall Museum and Museum of Indology. Jaipur is also renowned for its shopping including: fabrics, carpets, local handicrafts, camel leather goods, gems, blue pottery, and exquisite jewellery. A lively land filled with magnificent tales and treasures—Jaipur.
