Luni is an exceptional example of elegance and symmetry in
Indian architecture, built by maharaja Dallip Singh over a
hundred years ago.
The entire fortress is carved out of the famous red sandstone
of Jodhpur and with its ornately carved lattice work friezes
and intricate Jharokas, it exquisitely captures the romance
and grace of a bygone age.
The fort has been beautifully restored to its former glory and
each room has been created and decorated with its own
particular charm and me many courtyards, verandahs and gardens
all offer a setting and ambience set to capture your heart.
In the year
1948 Chanwa was granted in "Jagir" to Maharaja
Dalip Singh, the youngest son of Maharaja Umaid Singh, However
over the years the Fortress sank into years of neglect and
decay. In 1992 inspired by a wave of successful restorations
to heritage properties and encouraged by the burgeoning
tourism traffic into western Rajasthan Maharaj Dalip Singh,
the 24th generation of direct descent from Rao Jodha, ruler
and founder of Jodhpur in the 15the century decided to throw
open the gates of Chanwa to these new 'invaders". Today
Fort Chanwa restored to its pristine glory and charm by its
proud owners Maharaj Dalip Singh & Rani Madhu Devi, warmly
welcome travellers from distant lands offering princely
hospitality in an inimitably enchanting setting- a Heritage
Hotel in the finest traditions.
