About Jhira Bagh Palace

Contact DetailsHome

Jhira Bagh Palace is hundreds of acres of private estate away from all kinds of pollution. It is situated in the heart of Malwa, on the plains of Malwa Plateau in Dhar in Western Madhya Pradesh. The Malwa area where the palace stands is famous for its enchanting, velvety nights and one can experience the peace and tranquility of its clear, star-studded skies. Jhira Bagh Palace is located outside the city of Dhar and is only 30 kms from the historic and the largest fortified city in the world -- Mandu.

A breathtaking view of the sunset is visible across the sprawling lawns. The palace gardens are a natural setting for a variety of birds, some migratory. The Palace is surrounded by acres of land, where agricultural activities are carried out.

Historically and culturally, Dhar district has occupied an important place throughout the ages, both ancient and modern. Dhar, known as Dhara Nagari in ancient times, and Piran Dhar in the medieval period, has had the privilege of being the capital city, both in the ancient and in the early medieval periods.

Built by Maharaja Anand Rao Puar III of Dhar in the 1860's, the Jira Bagh Palace was renovated and reconstructed by Maharaja Anand Rao Puar IV, in the 1940's. The palace was a grand English guest house of Dhar state. Upto 1943 it played host to many British officers, Governor Generals and Viceroys of India and served the purpose of both official and recreational visits. Several records reveal elaborate plans for banquets, picnics, hunts, and sightseeing tours.
