luxury palaces to stay

Once India was called a golden bird because invaders found plenty of raw materials and expensive stones here. The kings and queens resided in giant palaces and governed their kingdoms from ostentatious grounds.

After so many years, only a handful of palaces survived several changes in regimes, wars and independence of India. Their rightful owners decided to upgrade them into luxury hotels that not only scream money and lavish style but also cost a hefty amount to stay a night.
