Umaid Bhavan Palace in the blue city of Jodhpur the fascinating palace of India and one of the largest private residences of the World. Ground for the foundations of the building was broken in 1929 by Maharaja Umaid Singh and the construction work was completed in 1943. The palace has 347 rooms and is the principal residence of the former Jodhpur royal family. A part of the palace has now been converted into a hotel and museum. The history of building the Umaid Bhawan Palace is linked to a curse by a saint who had said that a period of drought would follow the good rule of the Rathore Dynasty. Jodhpur faced severe drought and famine in the 1920s for a period of three consecutive years. The farmers of the area, faced with this hardship, sought the help of the then king Umaid Singh, who was the 37th Rathore ruler of Marwar at Jodhpur, to provide them with some employment so that they could survive the harsh conditions. The king, in order to help the farmers, decided to build a lavish palace
