Raas Jodhpur Video

Raas Jodhpur Video. Rajasthan, India/Jodhpur's first boutique hotel comprises three new buildings in addition to the original four; a rare and charming complex that reflects in many ways the Walled City itself. Indeed, with its sensational vistas, different styles and angles, a central water body, square and garden; and an all pervasive warm "organic feel" RAAS is a microcosm of the city. And…like virtually every home here, almost every room in the hotel enjoys the most spectacular view of Mehrangarh, rated in 2008 by Time Magazine as "Asia's Best Fortress".The new buildings are modern and contemporary in their use of space and light and context; and yet grounded in tradition. Jodhpur's red sand-stone unites the new with the old, even as modern designs and patterns in its dressing and carving add an exciting and fresh dimension to the region's age-old stone carving industry. This seamless harmony between the old and the new, the modern and the traditional, the familiar and the surprising…extends to all aspects of RAAS; and it is everywhere, and at all times, as comforting as it is inspirational. Situated in the prestigious north-eastern quarter of the Walled City, in the very shade of Mehrangarh's Victory Palace and Gate, and a stone's throw from the Clock Tower; RAAS comprised, in fact, of four charismatic buildings in Jodhpur's very own 'rose-red' sandstone. The oldest, the Haveli proper as it were, was built towards the end of the 18th Century and with its delicately carved stone panels - the hall-mark of Rajput Architecture - served as the exclusive and intimate residence of the family. The newest, the Baradari, a multi-pillared, multi-purpose open Pavilion built probably in the 1850s, was really the centre of activity; it was where the Thakur spent his days, and no doubt many a night, entertaining and being entertained. An impressive entrance Pol with its staff quarters and guard-house; the Dari-Khana - literally the Chamber of Carpets, which served as a Guest-House; a small Temple; and, of course, the Stables, complete the complex. raasjodhpur.com
