Balaram Palace Resort, once the hunting retreat of the Lohani Nawab of Palanpur, is now a Heritage Classic hotel. It was built between 1922-1936 by the 29th ruler of Palanpur, His Highness Zubd-ul-Mulk Dewan Mahakhan Nawab Sir Taley Muhammad Khan Lohani. It is a graceful manifestation of neo-classical and baroque architectural style. Situated amidst the Aravallis in the 542 sq. kms of Balaram Ambaji Reserve Forest at the tip of North Gujarat it borders Rajasthan. The palace is set in 13 acres of terraced upland rising from a hilly stream and surrounded by lush green gardens and designed flower beds. The palace was visited by several dignitaries during the British Raj, including Lord Mountbatten. A stay in the palace takes the tourist into the bygone Nawabi period to experience the real Nawabi ambience and architecture of northern Gujarat. The palatial huge rooms with antiques all around give a sense of royalty. The hunting point and the swimming pool existed 3/4th of a century back. Everything around is picturesque and nature is at its best.
