history of the house of Pachar goes back to the Surya
dynasty's 67 decency when RAJA KUSHA was born. He was
the younger son of Lord Rama. Of the same dynasty THAKUR
BHIM SINGH JI was awarded the Jageer of Pachar during
the year 1702.
The foundation of Castle of Pachar was laid Thakur Guman
Singh during the year 1725. Later on one of his
descendants Thakur Gopal singh felt the necessity of a
separate 'Kacheri' (court) and started its construction
during 1830 which was continued by his son Thakur Kalyan
Singh who added two mahals [ Royal apartments ] but due
to his untimely death the task was left incomplete.
Years later in 1930,Late Thakur Ganpat Singh converted
the Kachery complex into "RAWLA" [ladies quarters] for
their residential purpose. As the time changed, his two
sons, Thakur Shiv Nath Singh and Thakur Surendra Singh,
have now opened the Rawla into a heritage hotel since
1994 known as "CASTLE PACHAR".
Castle provides the following types of accommodations:-
Accommodation is available
in the Rawla which has 9 suites, 5 twin bedded rooms
and 2 single rooms. Rooms have been planned for basic
comfort keeping an ethnic touch. All the rooms are
different, some have pillared divisions and have
jharokhas [ balconies ].
Suites still have the character and reflection of their
original occupants. The furnishings and décor has not
been changed much and the visitors can still get a
glimpse of the splendid past of Rajasthan while staying
in the suites. Suites have depiction of rich paintings,
art and handicrafts. The
